Just east of Juneau, Alaska, along Taku Inlet are a series of mighty glaciers. Era Flightseeing took me atop one, the Norris, via helicopter; once there dogsleds took me around the awe-inspiring glacial world. There was absolute silence except for the sound of the dogs. It felt otherworldly, or at least like Antartica. I know John Carpenter filmed The Thing (a boyhood favorite of mine) in this area, so that makes sense.
The folks at Era could not have been nicer or more professional; I never felt unsafe, but we still had a blast! I definitely recommend taking a trip with them when you're in the area.
