Ah, Land at Last!!

We arrived into Seward with smiles on our faces. We all had a wonderful time; however we were all ready to get onto land. The sunrise was a perfect end to our trip and the ride back through Resurrection Bay was beautiful. The temperature was an ideal 65 degrees with the sun shining. We took a group picture with the Seward Mountains in the background said our goodbyes and exchanged emails. My ride back to Anchorage was peaceful and with breathtaking views. This was a very informative research and learning experience. I have many stories and pictures to share with my students, friends, and family.
