#1 & #2- Northern sea lions (aka Steller's sea lions) are bigger than California sea lions.
Their territories might overlap- but probably not as far north as Seward, Alaska.
These sea lions are resting between feeding periods.
Notice the bull- which is at least twice the size of the females.

#3- An aerial view of Harding Icefield, Which is about 300 square miles, and one mile deep at its deepest. Including the glaciers it spawns, the total amount of ice is about 800 square miles (different sources vary).
#4- One of the custom-designed 100-foot excursion boats used to see coastal Kenai Fjords National Park. The glacier face behind is about 300-feet tall.
#5- A tiny bergy bit.
Note: (generally speaking) ice bergs are pieces of glaciers (fresh water).
Ice floes are pieces of frozen ocean (salt water).

Another nice set, (despite how you treat me... ). The last one looks like a BIF, ( and you said you couldn't shoot BIF.) ~ Ron

Thanks Tim, Ron and Ken.
I liked Alaska so much that I drove up there 18 summers to work.
Ron, I tried being nice to you all the time, but after a week it just didn't seem right .
I might try it again.
Someday.

Great series Charlie!
I'd say that Harding Icefield worths a big print.

Thanks Socrate, Sorpa, Morris, Kirk, Bob, Brenton, Brian and KenMunroe.
Funny thing about massive Harding Icefield: nobody really knew much about it- especially its size- until airplanes began flying over it about a hundred years ago. Even now, access to it by trail is somewhat limited.
