College Fjords

The night after our stop in Whittier was our first year anniversary so we decided to splurge and eat a the French restaurant on the ship. The food was excellent. That night we cruised into the College Fjords. For those of you who don't know what a fjord is, it is the trough of dirt and rock that a glacier leaves behind as it moves across land. They are named the College Fjords because it was a multi-university expedition to discover them. Each glacier or fjord is named for a university that participated in the discovery. Don't ask me which fjord has which name. All I know is the Harvard Glacier is the big one at the back of the bay (therefore is the one in the big pictures).
