I live in view of the Sierra Nevada mountains.  I've lived up against the Rocky Mountains.  I've traveled through the Alps.  I know mountains.

And they seem so big in Alaska.  Everything in nature seems so big there.  And so beautiful.  Nature itself seems so vast.  Majestic is the word that comes to mind.

Water streaming down a mountain.

 That boat is dwarfed.

 About 2 miles from Hubbard Glacier, which would tower over the ship.

Carnival Miracle coming out of Tracy Arm.

 Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm.

 An alpine lake above Skagway.

A few years ago my wife's niece was transferred to Ft Wainright. Jordan posted day after day "I keep driving and driving and the mountains I see out there just don't get any closer!" She hated driving there.
