This is the last day/night on the ship and in the later afternoon/evening is scenic cruising in College Fjord with more glaciers.  Because it overlapped with dinner we went to the upper 14 level deck so we could bounce from side to side of the ship.  It was cold and rainy out so I hid under cover and ran out to take photos and see what was there.  I also ran to the front of the ship for a view of what was ahead.

There were a lot of different glaciers here but the star was Harbor Glacier at the end of the fjord.  We spent quite a bit of time by Harbor Glacier and were able to see it calving several times, one of which I managed to photograph (see center photo).

This was a great finale to the sea portion of the trip.  I'll be honest, at this point I was ready for something different as I had enough downtime on the ship.  Next adventure is the train up to Talkeetna and a night at Mt. McKinley Lodge.

Beautiful nature photos.
