We are interested in doing a Glacier Hike while in Alaska. We like to hike, however sometimes my knees get the best of me. That being said, is there anyway to do a Glacier Hike without the 2-3 hour hike just getting to the glacier? Like is there somewhere that we could fly in to do one or something like that? We are good with the few hours actually on the glacier....but I am afraid that the 2 or 3 hour hike to the glacier and 2 or 3 hours back may get the best of my poor knees.
Thoughts? i really want to see the crevasses and ice caves and glacier pools and all that...how can we do this?
