More Evidence of Aliens in Alaska

Tuesday 12 July 2016

We all enjoyed a quiet morning, but things got dicy in the afternoon. Some of the group headed out for a strenuous hike, and the smart ones signed up for the skiff tour. The skiff tour started out on the dull side:

Ho hum, we have been seeing mountains and clouds for two weeks. Still, it was nice to see the sunshine so bright.

We could barely see one of the hiking groups after they had landed.

Things are starting to get interesting. This is obviously a glacier. The notes on our trip map say Baird Glacier (thanks Kathy), but it looks different from the approach we made to Baird Glacier on our last trip. Maybe we are on another part of it. I’m not doing a good job of showing we are actually in a skiff, and are carefully winding our way through very shallow water. When we make the next turn, we can see some caves in the ice.

I don’t know what those streaks are. I’m thinking there might be some type of alien radioactivity affecting the camera sensor. It did it on the second photo as well. I suppose it is possible it is the camera capturing drips from inside the cave, but that isn’t as much fun as alien interference. Our guides had to pose for a photo at the cave entrance.

This photo clearly shows the entrance to the cave. I’m guessing this is where the aliens stored their exploration vehicles when they didn’t want to take them back to the mother ship.

We can see the hikers again – that is Tory in the center in the pink jacket. We think perhaps we have better views of the alien caves from the skiff.

There is a lesson here. Sometimes the days that start slowly, and the adventures that seem “meh” at the beginning lead to uncharted territory, and to the best surprises of the trip. The photos may not do justice to the sights we saw, and the fun we had working our way towards the ice caves. Does anyone remember the name of this area? I’m sure I wrote the name of the glacier down in my notes, but that would have been, cough cough, a while ago.
