Day 268

The Dailylife Wife and I are on our way to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiasco (There are suppose to be 850 hot air balloons…what else would it be but a fiasco???  {!-{>  ) and we are camping at KOA’s on the way down.  I went outside to stretch my les before going to bed, and […]

Day 267

The last view.  While this looks like it should be before the two previous posts, it was actually taken eight minutes after the ones below.  We were just starting to go around an island when I took the ones below, with a wide angle lens.  This one was with a telephoto lens after we passed […]

Day 261

Day 260

If you look to the right of the center, and slightly up you will see a big chuck of ice start to fall.  It smashes when it hits the ice below, and you can see why the water is full of little bits of ice. ~Curtis in Alaska! {!-{>

Day 259

Those chunks of ice floating below the glacier are some of what we saw fall in previous posts. Before the glacier calves, you hear a loud booming, a few seconds before the ice falls.  I recall this was called “white thunder”.  It is the ice cracking prior to the fall.  You have a couple of […]
