Our trip began in Bellingham, WA with a flight on Alaska Airlines to Seattle ,Seattle to Juneau, AK and then on to Gustavus, AK with a shuttle ride to Glacier Bay Lodge. Part of the package with the lodge included dinner at the lodge resturant, which did not complement the spectacular scienery of Glacier Bay.
After the disapointing dinner, we took a hike along the rocky shore and then through the forest trail back to the lodge. We saw a couple of Oyster Chatchers, and some beautiful wildflowers, Chocolate Lillies, along the hike. After returning to the lodge we attended the National Park Ranger talk in the up-stairs ampltheater.
We returned to our room around 10:30pm to get some sleep for the next day. Being the first day of summer, it was still light outside at this time even though it was a cloudy and misty.
