|View from our cabin at Hideaway Cove Wilderness Lodge near Halibut Cove and Homer|
We stayed the night before the hike. So beautiful!
|Stairs up to a point then hiked up and over the mountain.|
|Bear print in the mud.|
|Going down the far side to enter the Alder (tree) plain.|
|We've got to hike how far?????|
|A cairn we added to when we got closer to the glacier.|
|This was after we kayaked around the lake to a spot that was about a mile away from the glacier.|
We could hear the glacier groaning and popping... a mile away!
|The water temperature according to our guide was "3 minute" water.|
Three minutes before you'd be in excruciating pain.
We had waders on over our clothes and heavy jackets.
|The red line marks our hike, and the yellow where we kayaked.|
