|Marjorie Glacier is one of the most photogenic glaciers in |
Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. I had the good fortune to be there today
I learn about geography by traveling by cruise ship; geology, the day after a huge event-- They take place every day somewhere around the planet--- earthquakes, hurricanes, even glaciers move.
When I attempt to pick out anything by itself in Alaska , I find it connected to everything else in the Universe, yet I feel my smallness because of its vastness. The wilderness is therapy: Only by going alone in silence, without baggage and buffets,could I truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other traveling, including on this ship, is Karaoke traveling-a cheap imitation. But it's still worth doing. I can hear the ice sheet-music of the glacier calving and the music of the bay written in ice river lines.
Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean-John MUir
