Yakutat and the Hubbard Glacier

Everyone was in such anticipation when we cruised through the icy waters in Yakutat heading toward the Hubbard Glacier. This was to be my first glacier experience ever, so I was pretty excited about what I was going to see. Cruising through big chunks of ice was so exciting too. The ship turned on its ice crunching propellers to break through the big stuff.

We kept going in and out of the ship into the cold to see how close we were getting. It was freezing out there.

The Hubbard Glacier is a truly spectacular thing to see. It is so big and the different layers so beautiful in colour!

We went to our cabin when the ship turned. Huge chunks of the glacier were breaking off and plummeted into the sea, making a huge sound resembling thunder. When it was quiet you can hear the glacier crackling.

So amazing. This day was one of the highlights for me.
