Just outside our final Alaskan city of Seward, lies Exit Glacier. It's not particularly big, but it is quite accessible, and the surroundings are pretty. Also, there's BEARS around there.
I went up there by my own sweet self on Tuesday morning, while Albie and Court were on a boat cruise, then we all went in the evening, lack of daylight not posing a big problem this far north... All pics here.
Just before the glacier is a wild and wonderful national forest. Clutching bear spray in a sweaty hand, I ventured 10-15 minutes into the forest on the right hand side of the river.
At this nice little stream I turned back.
Nice area, but sadly devoid of bears.
The road goes ever on and on...
Two weeks before we came, the snow went OVER this rock according to the park rangers.
