    Alaska Cruise TR

    Day 4 was spent in Icy Strait Point/Hoonah AK - another island in southeast Alaska. The dock was only big enough for one ship so it was interesting to watch the other shipís passengers get ferried into shore.



    Todayís excursion was a bear search followed by a whale cruise. We didnít see any bears. With the abnormal heat in AK, salmon spawning season is running late so bears werenít out by the river trying to eat the salmon. We did have two gentlemen accompany us with rifles in case we had a close encounter with a bear.





    Had a delicious bloody mary before we boarded the whale cruise.




    We saw lots of whales! First a family of orcas, then some humpbacks.





    Including one who became very interested in our boat and circled it a couple times and was being playful.












    We did a specialty dinner that night for my nieceís 6th birthday at the QSine restaurant. They prepped a cake for her, which was very swee

    Juneau was a super cute town! Again had gorgeous weather. This was the one day I picked poorly with my excursions. I had originally booked dog sledding on a glacier at the next port (Skagway) but it got cancelled because the glacier is just melting at too high a clip. Lots of my family switched to dog sledding in Juneau but I didnít and I wish it did because it looked like so much fun.

    Instead I went rafting with my stepdad on a glacial river at the bottom of the mendenhall glacier. We had a lot of fun and it was gorgeous.














    Even saw an eagle hanging out next to the river.




    Glacial water is cloudy from all the rock silt that gets ground down as the glacier moved. Hereís a place where the glacial water met fresh water.



    Did some shopping in Juneau and got myself some rings and some super soft clothes made from bamboo.


    We had a very late boarding time in Juneau so we ate on shore for my nieceís bday. She got to pick the seating assignments and had a ball.

    Skagway

    Our last port was Skagway, AK. My sister and I visited a wildlife refuge here. First took a 45 min ferry ride, then a 45 min bus ride and spent 2 hours at the refuge (https://www.kroschelfilms.com/)

    Saw a wolf, wolvervine, red fox, lynx, porcupine, baby moose, artic fox, reindeer and a grizzly. Also got to kiss a moose.




















    Had pretty views on the ferry.

    Day 7 was an at-sea day that began early with a visit to hubbard glacier. It was a chilly but clear day and we had spectacular views of the glacier and ice calving (or breaking off of it).
