Glacier Bay was one of the seven new extraordinary national parks designated by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA), signed into law in Dec 2, 1980 - the most important environmental legislation in the history of the nation, protecting 104 million acres. Happy anniversary! #glacierbay#nationalpark#glacierbaynationalpark#alaska
Cruising through Alaska 🛳👋🏽

❄️ Recent cold snap has got me thinking about that time I visited Alaska ❄️ @wolverena has informed me it’s actually not that bad or 🌬 windy though! They sent a crew on an expedition to find a nice chunk of glacier. Yep I felt so cold that day that I ate my 🌮 Taco crepe with gloves on from @akcrepeescape 😝😍. One of the tastiest ones I’ve ever eaten.

The Sentinel Lighthouse, located in Glacier Bay outside of Juneau, was originally constructed in 1901 by George James, and replaced with the current tower in 1935. I’ve only been to Juneau once, but the area is rich with gold mining history. I hope to go back one day soon on my own time to do more exploring.
