At this point it was time to enjoy our unrestricted window view and narration which walked us through what we were seeing. 5 breathtaking glaciers (both advancing and receding) deep blue crevasses of the Juneau Icefield and snow-capped mountains, cascading waterfalls and lush forests.

Fly with us! I confess, I got a bit carried away with the pictures.

30 minutes goes by awfully fast when you are captivated by nature. I didn’t count to make sure it was really 5 glaciers or track advancing versus receding but as we began our landing approach to the lodge I know that all of us were absolutely enchanted. Although my tummy was happy we were approaching lunch, I was sad to be leaving the air, if only temporarily.

Wow! That's all I'm gonna say till you're done!

Perfect timing - you're done and that scenery is spectacular! I'm pretty speechless. Can't wait to see a real wilderness Lodge!

Wow! What an amazing excursion! I think you definitely chose correctly

Can't wait to hear about the "real wilderness lodge" and your meal.

I can see why you got carried away with the picture-taking...that scenery is beautiful. I can't wait to read about your meal though.

I'm glad that Jeff got a ride in a seaplane. He must have been in heaven. Did he get to stay near the cockpit during the flight?

Wowza! Amazing, spectacular views! But not sure I could handle flying in a plane that small... I think I would be freaking out. Heck, I was a little bit just looking at the photo of you getting buckled in.

He was in the copilot seat the entire flight there.

He may or may not have run ahead to make sure he was first on the plane to ensure that happened.
