Maybe we didn't travel to somewhere warm. Check out the ice! I don't think Hawaii or Tahiti have glaciers that come down to the waters edge,
or huge ice flows in any of the bays.
Here is Jim G kayaking up to the edge of Columbia Glacier, the second largest tidewater glacier in...
Alaska! What a gorgeous place. We traveled about 900 mi over 8 days and saw just a tiny slice of the 49th state.
I didn't kayak (water, yuck), but loved the ferry ride through Prince William Sound from Valdez to Whittier.
