April 17: Anchorage

I arrived in Anchorage where it is a balmy 30 degrees Fahrenheit anxiously anticipating my journey to the Pribilof Islands where I will meet the Icebreaker Healy.  I have been looking at the ice images in order to anticipate what lies ahead.  The ice coverage is much farther south this year than in past years but it is early spring now so the ice should begin to recede.

The weather forecast looks interesting for the upcoming days, rough and windy.
