AS a follow up to Happy Earth Day Happy Birthday to my mom, these are pictures from Glacier Bay Alaska from a cruise that mom and I took when she was trying to fit as much as she could into the rest of her life. This was one of the most amazing places I had ever seen mostly due to the age of the Ice. We even learned why the ice looks blue, and I would have never guessed. The ice filters out the other colors in the spectrum leaving only blue. You were always smiling but I could see the pain in your eyes.
