Continuing to the frigid north

In this post, we proceed to share with you our journey that eventually brought us to the northernmost state of the union, of the US that is. Now the place that our cruise ended was not in Anchorage but in the port of Seward, so that was still some distance away.

However, before we made landfall we still had two stops to make. And this is the subject of part 2 to our journey to Alaska.

Have you tried to go see whales only to be disappointed? Well, this seemed to be third time unlucky for us. Unless you count seeing the flukes many hundreds of meters away as a successful sighting. We assume you know what that means. But not so for some very fortunate kayakers though! But the reason we still had it good was the fact we took a flightseeing tour.

You can only imagine (well click on the above link and see) the beauty of the view from up in the air. You know, the issue is real. Climate change that is. Whether it’s warming or cooling is not the focus for us, but the fact it is changing the face of vast ice fields. You might have read recently (well a few months back) about a large chunk of coastal ice breaking off from Antarctica?

We all need to do the little we can to contribute – ie not add as the word suggests, but to help conserve. Practice the 3Rs and true minimalism in our opinion. Too much talk about all these have been going on, time to actually walk it.
