Alaska wows with cold sites

The mountains slide past our cruise ship as w3 sail the passages near Skagway, Alaska, on our recent vacation,  My wife, Linda, is holding on to her hood because of the brisk, cold wind.  Two things to note about this photo 1) the glacier in the middle of the picture sliding down the mountains ( you can slightly see the blue color of the ice). 2. the guy walking in shorts toward us -- he must have been doing the ice bucket challenge or something.  Oh, by the way, this is from the first week of August.

Cool journey home




In the cool of the evening and in frigid mountain waters, this gal was slowly making her way back home up in the mountains.  This is on the west side of Yellowstone National Park, shortly before you exit the park.

Blowing off steam



Will the geyser blow soon?  If you know the ways of this beast, you can probably guess the time it will blow within a couple hours.  A Yellowstone National Park ranger would come out to the site periodically to check the signs and give her prediction. 

When the geyser blows, it really puts on a visual and sound phantasmagoria.

A Peek at the Peak Peak



At the top of the photo is the peak of the Grand Teton.  The photo is from our trip to Yellowstone earlier this month.   We were climbing to Inspiration Point on the far side of Jenny Lake in the Grand Tetons National Park.
