of this action we only landed one kayak at a time. Each would touch
shore and quickly unload and run gear up shore to a safe area and
then carry the kayak to higher ground before the next tidal surge.
As we sat around
camp late on our first day we watched as a piece broke off that
was the full height of the glacier. It was about 33 stories high
and two and one half times wider than the average skyscraper. Wow,
what a splash. The visual and the sound was AWESOME!
Our third day
we paddled to closer than 1/2 mile of the glacier always being mindful
that each time a calving took place we had to free ourselves, as
much as possible, from the ice-flow so the kayaks didn't get damaged
being squeezed between large ice chunks. We had to be particularly
careful of the large icebergs.
