Prince William Sound

This is going to be very quick today.

It is so amazing how quickly the weather can change from sunny and warm to cold and windy.  Today, weather-wise, was not the best day for a cruise around Prince William Sound.  However, we did get to see a humpback whale which is apparently not very common in this area, and, because we didn’t have the harsh afternoon sunlight, the blue ice of the glaciers was spectacular.  On the other hand, because we had heavy, low clouds, we missed the awesome scenery of the mountains against the water.

I’ve chosen just a few photos to represent our day.  On another day when I’m not so tired, I’ll write a more complete account of our trip.

Until then, enjoy this little bit. Thanks for tagging along.
