7/31 we woke up in Glacier Bay. No getting off the ship here. I guess my expectations we so high about this place because everyone I talked to that had been on a cruise to Alaska said, "you have to go to Glacier Bay". I should have asked if the whole bay was full of glaciers. There are 3 big ones there. After seeing glaciers two days before I wasn't as happy as I would have been if I didn't see any.
But we did stop about a mile away from Marjerie Glacier, which was the first one I saw that had a big ice wall. The others sloped back. It was cool hearing the roaring thunder before a chunk of ice fell off. They told us this glacier is a mile long. Pretty cool to see.
