of heights and flying.
In 1988 we took a cruise that went to Alaska and one of the things I absolutely wanted to do was walk on a glacier but to do that I had to over come my fear of the above mentioned two things… heights and flying in helicopters. But it was worth the angst and I would do it again. The helicopter landed on the glacier and left us there for about a half hour to explore and take pictures. The glacier was bitter cold and we were fitted with heavy boots to keep our feet warm and jackets if we needed them. We did. When the helicopter came back for us it then flew us to the top of the Mendenhall glacier, what an awesome sight.
