Lovin' Alaska

Hello All ...
We have been having fabulous weather for our Alaskan Cruise!
Today it started to sprinkle during our excursion but that was all. 

Today was an exciting day of Whale Watching,
hiking through the rain forest and seeing Mendenhall Glacier!


While walking the trail through the Rain Forest headed to the glacier,
we saw where the entire forest bed was covered in moss ...
what a site!  AND, there were purple Lupin EVERY WHERE!
GORGEOUS!


That is Mendenhall glacier behind us
and 2 waterfalls to the right of us ...
what beauty!


I was able to catch a few awesome videos of the whales.
There was a mother with her calf in one spot and another set of whales
just left of where I was video taping.  
Never saw any jump clear out of the water but seeing what we did was exciting!
Also spotted some bald eagles too ... will share those photos another time!

Well, it's time to go to dinner ...
Headed out to Haines at 8 pm (Alaska time)
Have a great day ... Hugs from Alaska
