Boyz Trip 5

So the first night at Derickson Bay we just set up camp, had dinner and hung out. Camp hanging-out picture:

And a good kayak/scenery shot:

The next day was a bit more exciting. We kayaked around the corner to take a look at the Nellie Juan Glacier. We paddled through water full of ice chunks:

And sat in front of the glacier for awhile:

We stayed back at least a half mile; what we'd been told was a safe distance. We did see the glacier "calve" - a couple big chunks of ice fall off. Pretty impressive. We were far enough back that we didn't get any wake from them. Made sure that we grabbed a chunk of glacier ice to make cold drinks with back at camp:

When we got back to cam, some of us relaxed for awhile:

And some of us REALLY relaxed:

A few of us went for a hike. More on that in another post...

Aaahhh! So blue, so white and so green! Those rocks in the first picture look good for climbing. :) Those must have been some tasty cold drinks, with real glacier ice in them. How many people can say they've done that? Kinda give a new meaning to "on the rocks!"
