A ferry passes amidst the glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park

Glacier Bay

Alaska’s second most popular National Park exists not on a mountain, valley, or some other obscure remote location but rather on an easily reachable body of water near the Gulf of Alaska.

Commonly visited by Cruise Ship but also reachable from the nearby town of Gustavus, Glacier Bay National Park features over 1,000 Glaciers in its 3.2 million acres of protected land.

A quick day trip along its beautiful waters will reveal Bears, Eagles, Icebergs, and a plethora of epic tidewater glaciers.

Here are my photos from my recent trip:
