Ketchikan

In Ketchikan, seaplanes landed right next to our cruise ship. It seemed like the rate was about one every two or three minutes.


We went ziplining in the rainforest. Woohoo!



After the zipline, you took a 300 foot alpine slide, riding down on a burlap bag.

This is referred to as, "Mooning Eagle."

Glacier Bay National Park

Next up was Glacier Bay National Park.
The area is renowned for its sea life and the spectacular calving glaciers.

When George Vancouver discovered the entrance in 1794, it was completely iced-over.
By 1916 B.S. (Before SUV's), the glaciers had retreated almost 65 miles.

College Fjord Formal Dinner

My apologies for the posting hiatus. Things have been a bit hectic all around.
After cruising College Fjord, we got all dolled up (well the girls did anyway) for the first formal dinner.




Not a bad-looking bunch!
