Watery Wednesday #58:

11 May

Three years ago we went on an Alaskan cruise.  It was a 7-day cruise with three ports of call. Our last one was in Skagway, where we signed up for a tour that took us to the mountains and crossed the border to Canada’s Yukon territory. 

Along the way, our tour stopped at waterfalls like this.  They are along the road.  Our tour guide passed paper cups and asked us if we wanted to taste fresh glacial water from melting glacier and snow.

The picture above is a shot of another tour group.  The one below is where my husband boldly went down to where he can fetch the water for us. I didn’t attempt to go down as there was no trail and while it wasn’t a steep descent, the rocks were slick.

It’s the freshest invigorating water I’ve ever tasted.  I know I have been digging into my box of oldies.  You all can relate I’m sure about taking too many pictures at one time and forgetting all about them.

Water, water everywhere.  WATERY WEDNESDAY is a good place to spot some.  Go visit.  And say hi to our wonderful host, 2sweetnsaxy.

    I know what you mean about too many shots. I’ve spent nearly an hour (relaxing) but looking for a photo of a bonfire I had…oiuy.

    My Muskoka is cold, but I’m warm indoors in Ottawa!

    I love seeing photos from your archives and YES I can relate to taking too many photos at one time and then forgetting about them. LOL

    I’ve never been to Alaska but I found the water in Canada unbelievably cold and pure. Lovely.

    What a challenge to hike the “rugged” trails to the falls. Beautiful!

    I bet the water was wonderful, with all the aeration & being from fresh frozen tundra! My WW is both dry & wet! and a mystery still continues…
    my first visit, I envy your wonderful trips!

    My husband who has no interest in taking a cruise always says he would take the Alaskan one. It would be amazing to taste the water there and of course see the scenery. I am sure it was breathtaking. Valerie
