Glacier Bay National Park

September 11, 2009

My favorite part of our Alaskan cruise was Glacier Bay National Park.  We spent one entire day cruising in this remote and pristine wilderness.  Glacier Bay is accessible only by plane or ship, so I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience the beauty of this gem of a national park.

Here are some photographs that give you a sense of the wonders found in the park:
