And if the day is warm as it was in June - you'll see folks picnicing and wading in a little pond around the path to the waterfalls. The bus driver we had took us around to a little chapel on the university campus to view the glacier from there too. Inside the chapel you could sit in the pew and see the glacier - makes one wonder how much attention is paid to the chaplain on church sundays.
We saw the folks canoeing over to the glacier - too scarey for me. But it was calm water - looked effortless.
I think I paid $42 thorugh shoretrips - but you also had other stops as well as the trip directly to Mendenhall Glacier.
