John & Penny did a cruise in Alaska with Glacier Bay Cruises in May 2003. Many of the other passengers had digital cameras. John offered some space on kirriwa.net for anyone who wanted it, and a month or so later, this site was born.


You'll find a group photo of (most of) the passengers - one or two were hiding - here. The photos are here, and some links to information about Alaska are here.
