Our final day of cruising took us to College Fjord in Prince William Sound...

 

Here the taller mountains seemed closer to the sea...

 

Impressive pyramidal peak... with a passing similarity of Everest's summit profile...

Some old fella taking it easy on deck... cover him up...

Glacier taking a more vertical route into the ocean...

Entering College Fjord... Harvard Glacier in front with smaller glaciers up the side...

 

A view of Harvard Glacier (left) and Yale Glacier (right)...


 

Harvard Glacier... 1.5 miles across and advancing...

 

 

Yale Glacier... 20 miles long, but retreating...

 



Harvard up close...looking pretty inhospitable from jagged ice to windswept peaks...

 

 







While some of us were pacing the decks, Miche took it all in her stride with a drink in a nice sun spot in the Crow's Nest...




Yale bathed in partial sunlight...


Another steep glacier terminates in the Sound...



Waters mixing...





With 1250 other passengers on board there was still plenty of space for us to relax...


 


Miche writing her postcards...

 

We must have been missing something somewhere...


 



The reward for the 3 mile charity walk... pink lemonade... it turned into quite a competitive little outing for some of the older ladies who were racing each other, mad keen to finish first...

Our only formal-ish dinner on the last night for the Ship's crew's farewell banquet, the rest of the time we just grazed the buffet...

 


Next stop - Seward & Anchorage
