College Fjord

Alaska

At this point the drizzle caught up with us... and it was whole lot more comfortable to view the Glaciers from inside the ship.


Note the area of aqua blue - pure ice reflecting the crystal structure.

The vertical band of rocks and gravel is the result of two glacial flows joining up higher in the valley - each with its own load of glacial till which marks where the two flows have come together.


Ice water anyone?

There are a whole series of glaciers dumping into College Fjord - each named after a US college.

As the ship draws closer to the glacier you become aware that the glacier is hundreds of feet high and towers over the ship.

Out of the precipitation, on the boat deck. 54 deg. F, chilly with no sunshine.
