The most amazing glacier calving EVER!

Okay, this is the Aialik Glacier out of Seward. It is huge and amazing and wonderful and WOW! Here we are coming up to it. Soon we would be standing in the boat at the foot of the glacier watching the most amazing calving I have ever seen. Even some of the staff on the boat had never seen anything like it. If you look at these pictures closely you should be able to see a large crack that just falls. I have video of this section and I wish so badly I could figure out how to upload the video but because it was done on my camera and have not been able to get it on my blog. I will keep working on that!

Wow! I never did do a glacier cruise or see the calving....I was on bedrest when the rest of the family went - I think this is going to have to be added to our "play list." Thanks again for sharing your photos.

This is makes me also think of lava benches falling into the ocean on the Big Island of Hawaii. As the hot lava reaches the ocean, sometimes benches are formed and then periodically will break and fall into the ocean. God's creation is a mighty thing...especially when He is dealing with fire and ice!!
