Day 3~Juneau part two Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget falls

My first ever glacier.  I looked out along the cruise ship to see if I could see any on the way here, but I couldn’t tell.  Now I know most likely I did not see one till we arrived here. We had limited time so we walked as fast as necessary to see Nugget falls and the base of the glacier.  It was absolutely breathtaking. The rushing water down the hill-side hitting my warm face.  The water had a milky hue from the silt on the glacier. The magnitude was spectacular.
