I've had some neat experiences during these past few weeks though and I continue to be grateful for the opportunity that I've had to be here. On the 17th of last month I got the opportunity to ride along with the US Coast Guard on one of their cutters. It was AWESOME! I was a little out-numbered guys to girls but it was fun to see how they live and work on the ship and we had a great day out on the water.

|Swimming in Glacier Bay....crazy cold water!|
|I did it too :)|
|After the cold plunge...freezing and ready to run home to get warm|
Just a couple of days ago I was able to go out on the patrol boat with my favorite law enforcement rangers. We were able to go out along the outer coast of Glacier Bay and it was absolutely beautiful!! Dundas Bay is probably the most beautiful place I've been this summer. After we saw the bay, we had a great time riding the HUGE ocean wave swells, bouncing up and down like we were on a Disneyland ride. It was a great day at work.

Well, the clock is ticking and my time in Alaska is coming to a close. I fly home on the 25th of this month and will be going right back to school on the 29th. I can't wait to see every body!!
