Walking on Glaciers
With rumors of ice melting all around the world, I cherish the experiences I had on my trip to the inside passage on Wildland Adventures Alaska Northern Passages and Glacier Bay itinerary last summer which brought me up close and personal to several glaciers. I found myself hiking on-top of the massive Lamplugh Glacier, an 8 mile long and ¾ mile wide glacier that stands 180 feet tall. I took a sip of freshly melted glacial ice and leaped over deep crevasses, all while reveling in the beautiful views, clear blue skies and the icy still waters of the Glacier Bay National Park.
