Picking Up a Glacier Along the Way

Here are a few crew members from our cruise ship going out to bring back a piece of a glacier for passengers to see up close. The glacier you see in the background is Dawes Glacier. Click here if you want to see its location by the Endicott Arm waterway.

The crew is dwarfed against a large breakaway piece of the glacier.

The crew travels by several floating pieces before finally deciding on picking this one to bring back onboard.

The crew is coming back onboard with a special item.

Thanks to everyone who commenting on my last post! Yes, I had a great time in Seoul, but I still have a few more posts about Alaska. :)

those icebergs look rather bigger than the ones we saw in Greenland.

How exciting that you got to see all that happening! I'm seeing the world and things I didn't even know existed through your pictures. Thanks and keep them coming!!

Looks like a scene from Saturday morning show from years ago Land of the Lost, they dont look real.

Hyde DP: Wow, Greenland, how exciting. Perhaps it's just perception. I bet the Dawes Glacier in the background doesn't look very big until you get closer. Unfortunately, this is the closes we got before it started pouring rain.

Dot: Thank you so much for your comment. I am glad to hear you are enjoying the pictures.

Jim: I know the show you are referring to. Now that brings back memories.
