Alaska sojourn, part 2...

Greetings to all my readers melting in the August heat. I'm listening to my air conditioner cha-chinging away, wondering where I'll shave of some funds to pay a most undoubtably high bill for this past month. It's been humid here in my desert which means the evaporative cooler just makes it worse. Ah well, I'll count my blessings that I even have an alternative to keeping sanely cool during this hottest part of our summer........

Here is one image of glacial ice etched with spires and crevices to help cool your mind.

And, yes. It is that vibrant of a turquoise blue in real life - even more so up close, which we were able to get. You could hear the creaking and groaning as the ice shifted. And the size is deceiving in this photo. The glacial ice in the foreground is probably 4-5 stories high. If our ship were photographed next to it, we'd look like a pin dot. Massive energy.

The miracles of the natural world.....
