Hello. In Juneau, we did the helicopter glacier walkabout. Yes, it was expensive. But, considering they are melting before our eyes, I thought, I would walk on one of natures wonders while I could. We got to walk on the glacier for about 20 minutes. There are lots of crevices on the glacier, and it is VERY uneven. The crevices are soooo blue, with pools of water in them. The helicopters dropped us off and then they left. When they were flying back into to get us, it was awesome. The helicopters were echoing off the walls of the glacier. It was totally worth it. Every penny!!! It was sureal!! I would love to do it again. We also did the Mendenhall Glacier Float that same day. That was ok. We did not get as close to the base of the glacier as I thought we would. I was kinda disappointed at this. The river float was mild, I thought. After we floated for awhile, we started to float by homes built on the river. It is amazing how close, some of the homes are to the glacier base. But, on the other hand any river float is nice. In Victoria, we toured the castle, with the long name, "Crag" something it is called. Well, I was sorta disappointed. To me it was a mansion, not a castle. I was expecting a castle, like they have in europe or Britain. Nope, it is a mansion, I thought. Anyways, it is pretty, and worth the trip I thought. Then we toured Victoria, so see the city. Enjoy Alaska.
