Glacier Bay National Park

Aboard the Norwegian Pearl
July 1, 2010

These glaciers were filthy. I kept wondering, why can't they get a couple of guys out there with a pressure washer and clean 'em up?

The glaciers were obviously very impressive, but what thrilled us as much was the sunshine -- something we'd seen very little of since we left California.

We took advantage of the moment (and the other passengers' distraction) to try out the rock-climbing wall on the back of the ship. We all made it to the top, including Jen who needed a little encouragement, with us yelling at her as she calls to her patients, "Empujee! Muey forte!"
