Titanic’s Back Story

Several posts in this blog have discussed Titanic.  But the moral is that sometimes you can’t resist a force of nature.  On our flight out of Keflavik we crossed over Greenland.  We got good views of the East Coast.  The big island itself was cloud shrouded but we got a good view of the West Coast.

Icebergs calve off the Greenland’s Glaciers, and those from the West Coast flow down the Davis Strait with the Labrador Current, catch the Gulf Stream and sometimes get into the North Atlantic sea lanes.  So this is the backstory, the factory that manufactured the iceberg that did in Titanic.

And finally, over Greenland, over the Northern Canadian Islands, across the tundra and taiga mainland, over the mountains and into Seattle, waiting for our Alaska Airlines flight home.
