College_Fjord_(5)-01.jpgAlaska is famous for its glaciers and indeed you get to see a lot of them. Two places are really famous for glaciers: Juneau (the capital of Alaska) and Glacier Bay. Juneau has the Mendenhall glacier which receives its feed from the Juneau icefield. Glacier Bay has once been completely covered with ice which has now retreated. It is a national park, and there are park rangers on board who give valuable information about the glaciers and wildlife.
