Alaska Cruise

We sailed out of Vancouver harbour in the late afternoon ...

... watched a stunning sunset from our private balcony ...

... and cruised for the next day and a half to Juneau.

JUNEAU

Juneau harbour:

Note the tramway in the upper centre.

Mildenhall Glacier:

This is another glacier in rapid retreat.

The local ranger told us that when she arrived in Juneau in 1988 the glacier snout was near the waterfall on the right.

The boat, the tramway (which we used to visit the peak) and downtown Juneau.

SKAGWAY

The highlight of our stay in Skagway, was the train trip through the mountains back (briefly) into British Columbia (Canada).

Margaret took the train back to Skagway, but I rode back on a bike.

We have crossed many international borders, but this is the only one that I have crossed on a bike.

If you look in the background of the picture you will see the next section of road. It was mainly downhill which made for a relaxing ride.

There was only minor calving at Margerie Glacier when we were there - here is one example:
