When Mother Nature Whispers in Your Ear

Hiking up to Davidson Glacier (see my prior Post), I was fixated on its natural majesty. Then Mother Nature whispered in my ear. “Fool! Look down and see what I have made for you.” And Sure enough. The Glacial silt runoff kept Mother Nature untied and undefeated.

From Skagway to Davidson Glacier

So here you are, enjoying your early morning coffee in Skagway, Alaska and looking for something amazing to do. Look no further. Consider the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari. I’d like to tell you that it’s right down the road and you can’t miss it. Not quite true, but certainly worth the effort. You start off in a custom enclosed power boat for a 45-minute ride through Lynn Canal which happens to be North America’s deepest and longest fjord – with a chance to see all types of sea life, waterfalls and mountain views. The trip takes about 45 minutes. Upon arrival at Glacier Point beach you board a bus for a short ride to a base camp where you will gear up with boots to repel the glacier silt, life jackets and wet weather gear. A hike through a magnificent rain forest leads to 31-foot voyager canoes that will take to you Davidson Glacier recounted by John Muir in his travels around Glacier Bay in 1879. Just amazing! You will walk though the glacier silt and rock formations as you get closer to this natural wonder.

If your wandering takes you to Ketchikan, you are only 22 miles to the east from this magnificent experience.
