So the sun rises now about 4:30/5:00am and does not set until around 11pm. It never really gets completely dark. The days will be getting longer until the summer solstice on June 21; the longest day of the year.....this is why they call this the Land of the Midnight Sun. Check out this pic I took the other morning when my flight got into Alaska at 1am!
The next day we drove down south toward Seward to see Exit Glacier. The trail we took this time led us right up to the rock field at the bottom of the glacier. We crossed the rock field to get to the toe of the glacier. Exit actually comes down the side of the mountain and Harding Ice Field is at the top of the glacier, but that was a 7-8 mile hike and there were notices up that a brown bear was active in the area soooo.....I was content just to touch the "toe" of the glacier! Here are a few pics of the rock and silt at the bottom of the glacier and Exit Glacier itself.
