Great view of glaciers and PWS, especially the Surprise Glacier. We got to see it up close for at least half hour. The Salmon and rib buffet were tasty, too.

So incredible. This was perhaps the greatest day of our three weeks in Alaska. The weather was perfect and the pictures I brought back are perfect. The ranger was great, always available to answer questions.
