Alaska is strange! I went to Anchorage about two weeks before our cruise and it was beautiful...sunny every day. I thought that was what it was like. We were there for over a week with a NASA workshop on climate change.
We even took a small tour boat out of Sewell and toured the Kenai fjords and there wasn't a cloud to be seen. Turns out that is the strange weather.
We cruised from Vancouver and it was sunny most of our trip but as we went along it got cloudier. It was sort of raining when we went to the College Glaciers.
