We are coming up on the main glacier, it's on the left.
The glacier in the top right corner was enormous, like a giant slide!
We didn't get too close to that one.
Here we are coming up on Margerie Glacier.
I'm thinking that it's not that big, boy was I wrong!!
We stayed in this bay for almost 2 hours. In the picture below there was a small cruiser that went closer to the glacier, but the ship was so small it was hard to see, but it did give us a perspective on how really massive this glacier is. Unbelievable!! The Margerie Glacier is 21 miles long, 1 mile wide. It is 350 ft high with 250 feet above the water and 100 feet below. Pretty amazing right?!
I loved to see the blue in the ice.
Can you believe, that is a bald eagle. He was just sitting on an ice berg that was floating by the ship.
Way cool is see the glacier "calving" I was hoping that we would be able to see it and we did!!
This is an ariel view of the glacier I got on line so we could see how huge this thing is. Pretty impressive!
Wow, what a day. So exhausting seeing all those glaciers. (grin).
I can't wait to go again! Another great day!
