Aialik Glacier Tour
The other tour boat gives you a reference to how big it is.
And we get to see some calving (when large chunks of ice fall off into the water).
The cameras on the boat all go crazy every time one falls.
That crack slowly got bigger and I bet it fell sometime that day or the next.
The sound is pretty cool and the falling ice creates waves in the water and of course icebergs.
We pull into Fox Island for our dinner and the food is good. There is also a National Park Ranger presentation and some animal skulls and sea otter fur (which is crazy soft).
And a lot of cakes and snacks! I am sure two pieces of prime rib and salmon and 5 desserts was too much food!
