August 8

In and around Seward

We explored the Seward area on the 8th.  These are some pictures from our drive out towards Lewell Point

There was an old abandoned barge on the shore.

Tom and I took a hike to Tongira Creek.  There were, as usual, lots and lots of salmon in the creek, in various stages.  It was a beautiful spot.

Later on we drove out to Exit Glacier, where you can actually walk up to the glacier.  Here's some pictures from the area.

The glacier has been receding the past couple hundred years.  The park service put up signs marking where the glacier was at a particular year, so you can see how it receded.
