Juneau, Alaska - Mendenhall Glacier

After a full day of sailing it is always fun to dock!  Our first stop was Juneau!
Cody was definately excited to be off the ship and have freedom to run around!
We wanted to take a bus to see the Mendenhall Glacier but there was a 45 minute wait.  Here we are deciding if we really wanted to wait or if we should we go to plan B. 
After all...keeping Cody happy while waiting proved to be tricky...he wanted to be on the move and not wait around! 
But a sucker bought us a little time! The bus finally came and Cody loved riding it!
And it was well worth the wait! This glacier was beautiful!
And there were lots of places for Cody to climb!
Thankfully Daddy was willing to help him accomplish these steep steps!
The Glaciers are amazingly blue!
The chunks of ice floating in the water are incredible.
Too bad Cody isn't afraid of bears! He pointed out his eyes, ears, teeth, tongue and nose.

After enjoying our time at the glacier and visitor center we headed back into Juneau and took a walk around the town and did a little shopping.  It was a rainy day but still beautiful!
