    Once our bellies were full, (If You See It, Eat It) we headed up to Deck 10 to scope out a spot for Tracy Arm viewing.. We made it halfway up the starboard side when Deanna came up and said Hi to us at the forward funnels, which happened to be the warmest place on the deck at that time! She asked us if we wanted to join them because they had already staked out a great spot! We were so grateful for that because it was already really crowded up there and I don't know that we would have found somewhere to stand had they not! We started taking loads of photos and Jeremy kept messing with Gwen, trying to make her laugh and stuff because she was just lounging on the chair at the beginning of Tracy Arm. Both Darren and I needed a lens cleaning cloth, and I remembered I had a lens pen in my camera bag downstairs, so yet again I ran down to the room to get it. Jeremy took some pics while I was gone, and one of them had some eagles in it and he didn't even realize until we got home and starting looking through them!

    [​IMG]

    Apparently while I was gone to the room, Darren was telling Jeremy how he really wanted to see a bear from a distance so when I got back up to the deck and Darren wasn't expecting it, Jeremy called out, "HEY! There is a Bear!", Darren spun around so fast and was like "Where...Where?" Jeremy had a good laugh about that, I thought it was a little mean, but oh well. My hubby is a prankster! I took a photo with the boat in view so you could see just how narrow this fjord actually was, at some points I wasn't sure we were going to be able to make it through.

    [​IMG]

    This is the type of beauty that I think everyone talks about when they have been to Alaska. It is really hard to even capture it on film. I looked at I don't know how many photos before we came on this trip, I don't think anything can prepare you for what you are going to see

    [​IMG]

    Even though it was a little cloudy, we had great weather the entire time we were going up Tracy Arm, and even when we were coming out as well

    [​IMG]

    We started seeing more and more icebergs as we were getting further into the fjord and closer to the glacier, a lot of them even had seals on them! There were big ones, small ones, pups, even seals playing in the water! I can't imagine what they think of these giant cruise ships passing right beside them!

    [​IMG]

    I don't want to overload you all on random scenery shots, so I am trying to be very choosy when I pick some of them, but like I said if you are really into photos, then there are tons to look at in the albums with the links at the bottom of the first post! On tracy Arm Day alone, I had to do it in parts because I took so many photos!

    [​IMG]

    When the Naturalist was doing his talks he mentioned that the ice that is exposed to the air for a few hours will turn white, when the air enters into it, so if air doesn't enter it, it stays really blue! I was fascinated by the glacial icebergs floating right beside the boat! Don't be alarmed if you feel the ship hitting them either, because it does happen but there is no need to be alarmed!

    [​IMG]

    We kept making our way forward, at some places I kept thinking that has to be a dead end, but we would just turn and keep going on our way as if we were some tiny boat going up through all of this!

    [​IMG]

    Finally, we had our first peek of the glacier, it was still a little far away, but whoa, we were all giddy with anticipation! There was one thing in our way a little island in the center of the fjord, we seriously weren't going to be able to fit through that right??

    [​IMG]

    We sure did go right on through on the lefthand side of it, it was also cool because there were more eagles on the trees, so I just started calling it Eagle Island, although I am sure it probably has a name...

    [​IMG]

    Jeremy was fascinated by the waterfalls, the greenness of the water and the low clouds shrouding the mountainsides!

    [​IMG]

    The first time seeing the glacier, no photos or words can remotely prepare you for how HUGE this thing actually is. It is Ginormous!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    From these photos, the icebergs look pretty small, but I managed to get one of a boat down there, and it kind of puts to scale the size of these glacial icebergs when compared to that boat!

    [​IMG]

    There are also hundreds of seals near the face of the glacier. They are just all happily basking in the sun on top of the icebergs! They almost look like little specs of brown, but they were everywhere!

    [​IMG]

    About the time we were getting really close to the glacier, it was time for us to head to Palo for High Tea. So we said goodbye to Darren, (Deanna and Gwen had gone to the pool), and quickly ran to the room and changed clothes, and made it to Palo by 3:00 exactly!

    What? No picture of the seal poop iceberg! We loved standing next to you guys during Tracy Arm; it gave us time to hang out and chat while waiting for the glacier to arrive. "hey mom; look there is a glacier up there!" uh duh Gwen, why do you think we have been standing out here in the cold for 4 hours? :)

    I was initially sad about leaving the glacier when we were so close to it, but we really wanted to do the High Tea because we knew we would not have another chance to do it since they are canceling the service. We got up to Palo and were able to go right in and be seated! All of my fears of missing the view were thrown out the window, we could still see everything from here since all High Tea tables have exterior views!

    [​IMG]

    Our server today was Judy, Toni had the High Tea shift off today because there are only 3 servers scheduled for it. Another thing I found out was that there are only 9 servers total for Palo. We sat down and Judy asked where we were from, we told her North Carolina and she immediately tried to figure out what the capital was, she did mention Charlotte, which is where we are from, but she knew that it wasn't the capital, but the largest city, which is correct! So I ordered the Imperial English Breakfast Tea from the selections of Black Tea, and Jeremy had the Lemon Verbena Herbal Tea!

    [​IMG]

    I was so thrilled that we were still able to see the glacier, so if any of you have doubts about doing High Tea while you still have a chance, you should have no problems with viewing while inside Palo during Tracy Arm Day! Our first course was a lovely selection of tea sandwiches, including egg salad, smoked salmon, prosciutto, cucumber, and cheese with chutney.

    [​IMG]

    My tea was great, I always like the traditional type teas, at Grand Floridian's Garden View Tea Room, I always get the Princess Breakfast Tea, and it is very similar to the one I had today! After sandwiches we each received some scones with devonshire cream and jam, then a nice plethora of petit-fours, which included Jeremy's favorite chocolate covered strawberries! This time they had been Disneyfied!

    [​IMG]

    Of course she brought us extra of those when she found out they were his fav! He was in chocolate strawberry heaven! The scenery was still all around us and Judy mentioned that she had never seen a seal before. Well that just wouldn't do so we got up and pointed some out to her! Just as we did that, Minnie and Donald were walking by the windows. We never did get any photos with the characters while outside at Tracy Arm, we saw loads of them at Shutters later on, the only photographer we saw took a group photo of us and The Schindels, which we wanted to see later on tonight when it gets put up at Shutters! Our tea was really great, so I am glad we were able to do it! Before we said goodbye to Judy we had to tell her that the capital of NC was Raleigh, and she was so upset with herself because she knew it, and just couldn't find it in her brain! After spending almost 2 hours in Palo we chose to go and see Chimpanzee which was playing in the Buena Vista Theater at 5:00. While we were waiting on the elevator to go down to Deck 5 Donald and his cast member came up and asked if they could ride down the elevator with us! We had a lovely pantomime conversation about how he stayed warm up here in Alaska and how I needed to get some faux feathers to wear for me to stay warm because he does not support humans or anyone for that matter wearing real feathers and furs! We made a quick stop off at the room and we already had a towel animal waiting for us!

    [​IMG]

    Chimpanzee, if you have not seen it is adorable! It is a pretty short movie too, but I highly recommend it! On our way out of the Theater, third times the charm, we ran into Deanna! She was on her way to dinner and we were on our way to Shutters because we had finally made the decision to purchase a photo package. The girl who was there was the same one who had taken that photo outside of Tritons the night before, she again raved about that photo and my shoes! So funny! Photos in hand, we went down to the Lobby Atrium to stand in line to have photos with Kenai and Koda from Brother Bear. It turned out those would be the only bears we saw the entire trip!

    [​IMG]

    Next we stood in line for Donald who recognized us from the elevator by pointing at his feathers! It was great, and I totally loved his Alaskan outfit!

    [​IMG]

    What is great about these lines is that you pretty much keep standing with the same people in them over and over! If you really want to get photos with the characters, you will have TONS of chances on the ship, they are pretty much everywhere all the time, and you even run into them walking down the halls, The hallway before you get to Shutters seems to be a very good place to get them by themselves if you want to have more of a moment as opposed to a choreographed photo! So we had moved on from the Donald line, and were now waiting on Minnie, I was trying to take a photo of Jeremy and this random guy ended up being in the picture, all I can think now is if he was wondering if I was taking a picture of him? Who knows...LOL

    [​IMG]

    We finally got Minnie, and then Chip & Dale who are Jeremy's favorite Disney characters! Chip tried to take me away with him during the photo which made Jeremy and Dale laugh!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For dinner tonight we were in Tritons again for the French Dinner Menu! This was the one I was looking forward to! When we got there Mario & Tricia wanted to see our photos of the seals and whales from earlier, and also our formal photos from last night that we had just purchased! Tricia really liked my shoes, but was much more interested in my nail polish! (Koliary by NARS if you were interested...LOL) For dinner I ordered "Prince Eric's" Escargot Gratinee which was Herb-marinated Snails with finely chopped Mushrooms, topped with Garlic Butter..yummy! I love Escargot, if you haven't tried them I would highly advise it, especially if you like mushrooms!!

    [​IMG]

    For my Soup I had the "Chef Louis" French Onion Soup with Gruyere Cheese Crouton and for my main course I had the Tritons Seared Sea Bass perched on a Mushroom Herb Risotto, Sweet Onion Marmalade, and garnished with a Potato Crisp! Jeremy ordered the Grilled Jumbo Shrimp as an appetizer, the Tomato and Basil Soup, and for his Main Course the Aged Angus Grilled Beef Tenderloin on Olive-Oil Smashed Potatoes, Bacon-wrapped Green Beans, and a Mustard Madeira Sauce! We really enjoyed everything we had this evening! We were so full we contemplated splitting a dessert tonight, and Tricia was not having that at all! So we ended up having 3. We had the Creme Brûlée with Seasonal Berries, the Grand Marnier Soufflé, and the Brioche and Panettone Pudding served with Warm Toffee Sauce

    [​IMG]

    When I had made it almost all the way through the bread pudding, I noticed it had something blue inside? Then we all started playing, guess what it is! Barry, the Head Server was so perplexed that he went and asked the Chef in the kitchen. It turned out to be nothing more than some type of frozen fruit that had made its way into it. Ah well, so much for that, but I am still not sure what fruit would have been that color blue...LOL! Tired, yet again after a long day of being in the wind and cold, we wanted to go to sleep. So we left Tritons, then made a decision that at least I wanted to walk to Shutters to see if that photo from earlier in the day had made its way onto the wall! Sure enough it was, I absolutely LOVED it and had to have it!

    [​IMG]

    It was such a fun day out there! Tomorrow would be our actual first Port of Call, Skagway! Our fingers were crossed that we would have good weather! But for now, we headed back to the room for some more R&R!

    That is good to know! I am gonna remember that for our Dream cruise in August! Thanks!

    I thought about putting the seal poo pic up, but then decided against it...LOL I didn't hold back in the albums though, All 1671 pics will be put in there! It has only been such a short time but I already really miss hanging out with you guys!

    I know I will when we go again! I love my hubby, but I want to know what everyone else did with their time...LOL

    Ahhh, we love that picture of us! What a great memory. And it actually had people in it, unlike the other 1999 pictures Darren took on the trip! We miss you guys, too! Let's start planning our next getaway!

    Great pics! Looks like you guys were freezing! :)

    I am shocked to see that pic with the boat next to the icebergs! I guess whenever I see peoples Tracy Arm pics I think those are just tiny little ice pieces floating around! I can't believe they are really that big!

    I'm not gonna lie...the first one we pass I may clenching just a tad :lmao:

    And as a side note: The pic of you guys on the deck for Tracy Arm, is that the 55-250 lens on your canon?

    I'm ready when you guys are!...LOL

    Thank you! I should have the Skagway Update on today!

    Will do! ;)

    Thank you! I was proud of a lot of them, but I had to take a bunch to get good ones...LOL Your cruise will come up faster than you know! I know ours did!

    I was actually pretty warm while up there, I am glad I prepared and had everything I needed! I thought the icebergs were small too, until I saw that boat next to a lot of them! And yes, that is the 55-250 lens on the camera! I took the majority of the photos with that lens on that day!

    Today we finally get to hop off the ship into Skagway! The first actual port day in Alaska for us! Our trip seems to be going by pretty fast which is making me sad. We didn't make any excursion plans in Skagway and just decided to go it on our own and go hiking!

    We were up and out of the room before we officially made it to port so I managed to see another boat while we were outside! I think it was the first larger boat we had seen since leaving Seattle.

    [​IMG]

    We left our room and went up to Deck 9 to Goofy's Galley to grab quick breakfast of cereal and fruit before heading down to Deck 3 Lobby Atrium to get off the ship. At 7:00am, I really think we might have been the first people to get off because the whole town was deserted when we got down there. We were docked at the Congress Street Dock which was different than all of TR's I had read, they were all docked at the Broadway Dock at the end of the street!

    [​IMG]

    We had a short little 1/4 mile walk to get to the town from the ship and passed a lovely little harbor which pretty much just screams small Alaskan town to me! It was so beautiful!

    [​IMG]

    For anyone taking the White Pass Rail excursions, the track literally stops at the boats, You could throw a rock from Deck 4 of the ship and hit the train it is so close! There was a train pulling into the other dock while we were walking into town so we did have to wait until it passed, before we official made it into town!

    [​IMG]

    The first place we stopped was the Visitor's Center to pick up a Walking Tour Map, as well as a Skagway Hiking Trail Map, then we were on our way!

    [​IMG]

    We went by all of the most famous sites in Skagway, it is such a cute little town. Although it is a bit overrun with cruise line stores and shopping places. There are still a few cool places to get authentic souvenirs, if you are looking for things like that! In front of one shop Jeremy noticed a truck that he wanted!

    [​IMG]

    When we were finished with the city tour we started making our way out to the Gold Rush Cemetery and Lower Reid Falls. That walk was 4 miles roundtrip and it was a lovely walk at that, I had forgotten to use the Little Girl's Room before we left town, so I was looking for a restroom everywhere! As we were making our way to the Cemetery through the Train yard I heard a train coming and took the time to take some video of it! Then I saw it!!!

    [​IMG]

    I was so excited! I went inside and thought to myself...I didn't know they still has outhouses in 2012? Apparently they did, because all that was inside here was a big open hole with a toilet bucket sat on top which had a seat, some TP, and seat covers, and some Purell...luckily, Thank GOODNESS for the Purell!! It looks so unassuming from the outside though right? Back to the pretty things now! It was a very short easy hike from the Cemetery to Lower Reid Falls, and they were beautiful!

    [​IMG]

    We met a lovely couple up there who had a dog with them, and it made me miss my babies at home. I kept thinking how much Saghani (our Alaskan Malamute) would love this place! The water from the Falls was so crystal clear Jeremy even contemplated drinking it for a moment, he didn't though.

    [​IMG]

    When we got back down to the tracks another train was going by so we stopped and waved at all of the Disney Cruisers taking their train ride, we even knew some of them! We also took the time to post a few pictures on Facebook and makes some calls since we had been technology deprived for 2 whole days...LOL We started making our way back towards town and Jeremy decided he wanted to see if there were any geocaches in the vicinity. We went to look for one which was going to be too annoying, so we skipped it and headed for another one closer to town. OH and FYI, Alaska has some BIG mosquitoes!

    [​IMG]

    We got to the coordinates and Jeremy was looking everywhere and couldn't find it. I again needed to go to the restroom, so I sat down on the old piece of railroad something or other, while he kept looking. Finally after a while he came back toward me and all I heard was, "You got to be kidding me!", I had been sitting right next to it the entire time!

    [​IMG]

    By now it was about 10:15am and we started getting a little hungry. We happened upon Skagway Brewing Co. They didn't start serving food until 11:00 so what were we going to do until then? Well it was Beer O'clock somewhere in the world, so Jeremy got a sampler of their house beers plus and Alaskan White!

    [​IMG]

    It gave me a little bit of time to catch up on TR notes, which was a good thing! For lunch, we ended up ordering loaded tater tots and some burgers and fries! Not the healthiest of lunches but we were going to hike it off anyway so what the heck! I also know that it wasn't the most Alaskan of meals but we were planning on eating King Crab tomorrow and Halibut in Ketchikan, so we weren't too worried about it, besides he did have some Alaskan Beer right?? That counts!

    We took one of the train rides in Skagway that you mention.
    First, as we were leaving town, someone in our railcar noticed a tent city set up right next to the tracks. The young lady who was acting as a guide in our railcar (a college student, as they all appeared to be) explained that the #1, in fact the main industry in Skagway is tourism. Therefore in the summer tourist season, many people need to move to town for these temporary jobs. But there isn't enough housing. So they bring a tent and set up in this little make-shift village, and....... they pay $300 a month for a little piece of land just big enough to pitch that tent. No running water, no electricity. SMH! I could not imagine living that way even if only for the summer.

    Second, there was a full grown black bear the came right up next to the train as we were ascending. When we reached the US/Canadian border and reversed the direction of the train, everyone was looking for the bear again, but it was gone.

    I have pictures of all of this (tent and bear), but no idea how to upload them to this site.

    I uploaded my photos to www.photobucket.com and then linked them to my post via the image button above! (It is in the same place where you change the fonts, colors, sizes, add links, etc.) Hope that helps!

    After we finished up with lunch, we decided to do one more geocache before going on our hike! We found it really quickly, made a pitstop, after all we were going on a 7 mile hike, and then we were off! We started going up the trail, following the signs, now this was our first problem. We wanted to go to Icy Lake and Upper Reid Falls, so we were following the signs for that, when we should have read and followed the signs for Lower Dewey Lake first! If we had done that, we would have read this little piece of information. "A short distance up the hill the trail branches off to the right, continuing straight up is a steep power company maintenance road." Well the Icy Lake and Upper Reid Falls pointed that direction so that is the way we went! That little "shortcut" turned out to be an almost completely vertical trail. We were so out of breath from that first part, it was crazy! We kept having to stop over and over because of how difficult it was for us. After 30 minutes or so going up this way, Jeremy pulled out the map and realized our mistake...we had been doing the HARD trail otherwise known as the "unimproved road" by the map key! Finally, 45 minutes later, we made it to the trailhead for the Icy Lake/Upper Reid Falls trail. When we got here, we seriously debated not even going any farther. There was a nice easy downhill trail going back toward Lower Dewey Lake...

    [​IMG]

    Or a semi-inclined trail going up to Icy Lake and Upper Reid Falls.

    [​IMG]

    At one point we just put ourselves back to back, and on the count of 3 each of us went the way we wanted to go. We ended up choosing to go ahead and go on up the trail, after all we were in Alaska, we might as well do it! There was a guy coming down the steep beginning hill, who told us it did eventually flatten out , which was very nice to hear! Jeremy was so excited about that!

    [​IMG]

    So we kept going and going and going, just like the Energizer bunny. When we were almost to Icy Lake we saw another guy coming down, except strangely enough he was wearing a blazer and chuck taylors. We thought that rather odd, and kept going. I mean we have on like hiking pants, and hiking boots, and this guy looks like he is going to dinner? We finally made it to Icy Lake!

    [​IMG]

    At the front side, we were seriously thinking, did we just climb that...for this? But, once we made it around to the other side we were happy with our decision to go up. Now, onward to Upper Reid Falls! Lower Reid was beautiful, so we have high expectations for the Upper Falls! So we keep going and going and find a lovely little sandy beach (glacial silt) and then an elusive creature, the orange jacket of the Alaskan Wilderness!

    [​IMG]

    That jacket was just randomly hung in a tree, no one around, we never even saw anyone other than those 2 guys the whole time we were hiking! Then for the last 1/4 mile of the trail you have to walk along a pipeline which is diverting water into Icy Lake from Reid Falls. After 1 hour and 45 minutes of hiking up this mountain, we made it to the end of the trail...

    [​IMG]

    Literally, a sign that said End Of Trail. We could hear the waterfall, we could BARELY see it though the trees. So basically, we hiked all that way over 800 feet in elevation gain, and 3 1/2 miles to see a bench...

    [​IMG]

    and hear a waterfall, blocked by trees, at a cliff edge, and a power company shack, with everything roped off so you can go no further...:lmao:

    [​IMG]

    You would think that they would mention in the hiking trail guide, that you cannot actually see Upper Reid Falls when you actually get there. That would have been helpful information to know. Oh well, what can we do about it now...it is actually kind of amusing, now that we are back at home. At the time though, we were so disappointed, and then aggravated a little that we wasted all of that time, for pretty much nothing. Our way back down was much faster but much harder on our feet. By the time we got to the bottom, my heel was bleeding from my shoes rubbing against it. We knew that we needed to get a magnet and 2 postcards from Skagway, so we made our way down Broadway, picked those up and headed back to the ship!

    [​IMG]

    We did have one more geocache to do, which was on the way, to drop off some Travel Bugs. We got back on the boat by 4:15 and went up to the room. Now...should we go see Avengers or go to the hot tub? As it turns out, neither. Well we tried to go to the hot tubs, but they were both full when we got there, so we decided to go swimming in the pool instead. It was nice for a little while, then...we had to get out! In 40 something degree windy weather, that is a whole different kind of challenge in and of itself! After the pool we came back to the room to get showers and dressed to see what else was happening out and about around the ship! There wasn't really anything we wanted to do until 8:00 and it is 6:05 now, so we decided to go and check out Cove Cafe! Tonight we were going to stay awake after dinner!!! We just had to! Jeremy had a nice mocha latte and I had a vanilla one!

    [​IMG]

    We walked around the ship a bit after having our coffee, we were hoping to run into our friends The Schindels, but it never happened :sad1: It was about time that Mickey was scheduled to be in the lobby atrium, so we stood in line for him. It was really great though because Minnie turned out to be with him!

    Tonight we had our first dinner at Animator's Palate! We both skipped appetizers but had the Baked Potato and Cheddar Cheese Soup, For my entree I ordered the Asian Marinated Beef Tenderloin, and Jeremy the Lemon-Thyme Marinated Chicken Breast. When Mario brought out the entrees, he brought me the Veal Chop. I am not one to say anything, and I really HATE, hate, hate to waste food. So I just ate it anyway. After I had almost completely finished eating it, he brought out the other entree! I'm glad I didn't eat an appetizer after all because now I had a whole other entree to eat! At the end of our meal, Tricia gave us a riddle of 5 crayons making a horse, and we had to move one of the crayons to make the horse be facing another direction. Dumb Horse...well dumb us really because we never did figure it out and she had to show us in the end. For dessert tonight I got the Buckled Warm Apple Crumble, and Jeremy the Double-Fudge Chocolate Cake. We saw the show at Animator's and you will never guess what next! We actually stayed awake to go and see the Match Your Mate show in Wavebands! After the show all we could think about was, "In the queue line for Batman, at Six Flags over Georgia", that ride will never be thought of the same again by us. On our way back to our room we ran into a Sleepwalking Goofy!

    Aren't you guys proud of us! We stayed up to do something after dinner was over! But now it was time for us to get to bed, we had a very early port time in Juneau tomorrow morning!

    All that hiking to see a bench?! I seriously think I would have cried! That is frustrating!

    I love Goofy's jammies--I'm really hoping we encounter him in his jammies. So cute and definitely not an outfit you see in the parks!

    Yeah, I'm surprised I didn't cry, I was way more angry than sad at the time, Probably because we were so tired from hiking that far up that mountain...LOL
    I was so happy to see Goofy in that outfit, because it was totally not a scheduled time for him to be there, so he was just randomly walking through the halls! It was fantastic!!

    OMG all that way for a bench! You'd think the guy you saw might have mentioned it. I didn't have to wait long to find out the answer to will you stay up. Isn't Match your Mate funny. Love sleepy goofy!
