To Alaska and back!

For someone who rarely leaves her own backyard, cruising Alaska is really stepping out!  Thom Nulty took us (and Carolyn) on a wonderful cruise from Anchorage to Vancouver in September.  This post is photo heavy, but these are just a FEW of the beautiful photos from our trip.

This is Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas.
 
Can't figure out which was ours!

Chuck taking in the magnificent scenery.


This is Hubbard Glacier.  It was truly awsome!  It "calves" off icebergs the size of 10-story buildings.


Calving is what caused the splash in the foreground below.



We rode the world's largest zipline in Icy Strait Point.  That was a BLAST!


These are some of the towel critters made by our stateroom attendant, Joel.

My favorite was the elephant:

And this is Joel (and me):

Thom, our special friend, how do we say thank you?
We love you.
