Alaska Journaling


After all that sensory input, we didn't feel like going any further, so we spent the night in their parking lot with the best view we've had so far.

I parked lengthwise with the glacier filling my side windows and snow-covered mountains with the most interesting peaks filling my front windows.
Not long after our tour it started clouding up, but the view was still phenomenal.
At one point, rays of sunshine beamed through the clouds sending heavenly spotlights down the snowy gorge upon these huge sparkling boulders across the street. They shone like diamonds and we couldn't help but feel personally blessed to be spectators of such a divine sight.
Then we were witness to a concert put on by the clouds. A symphony of fluffy white ones started at the top of the glacier and looked like an avalanche spewing snow as it cascaded down into the valley.
Then there was the baritone grey ominous ones that moved swiftly across the middle range. The piece was completed by small wispy puffs that floated upwards looking like spirit beings rising to the heavens.
What an incredible sight and what marvelous neighbors clouds and mountains make!
