So...yesterday I finally got to climb a glacier here. Problem: there was still 18 feet of snow on top of the glacier, so the glacier was invisible. It was basically a three hour uphill "snow hike" and not a "glacier hike" but it was remote and strange and wonderful...and here's a two pictures (sorry, cellphone camera!):
A few of you have emailed me to say, "Are you enjoying this vacation? I can't tell!"
That question needs a longish answr -- but now I have to hurry up and check out of here or they're going to charge me for another day, so that one will have to wait until Delta delays my flights again and I have scads of time to kill in either ANC or MSP before getting on the plane to LGA!
