Friday, July 18th, Seward to Anchorage

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.

In the words of Santayana, “The earth has music for those who listen.”  Today she played a symphony, a combination of Vivaldi and Bach as the sky exposed her beauty and the sun glistened across Resurrection Bay. Words cannot capture and express the majestic scenery as we made our way from Seward back to Anchorage today.
After a breakfast of lemon shortbread and espresso, we leisurely traveled Exit Road to the Kenai Fjord National Park.

 We headed toward Exit Glacier and hiked just to the Toe to watch her grey rushing waters swiftly pass us as they flow into Resurrection River and eventually the Pacific.

What a sight to behold! Seeing her icy blue walls etched by time and receding as our climate changes.
Exit is only one of the 38 glaciers in the Harding Icefield, which stretches 700 square miles.

 We enjoyed the natural beauty of this area before hitting the road home for Anchorage.
