Aug 31, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird
Today was truly an Alaskan experience with plenty of rain and spectacular wilderness all around us. Many explored Williams Cove via kayaks and paddleboards, navigating the frigid glacial waters in search of ice and wildlife on the shore. Hikers trekked through a section of the Tongass National Forest, which is the most intact temperate rainforest in the world! We splashed through puddles, stared up at massive trees, and foraged the last remaining blue berries of the season. Following lunch, the National Geographic Sea Bird began weaving its way through the magnificent fjord of Tracy Arm. Near the terminus, we all boarded the expedition landing crafts for an up close and unforgettable view of Sawyer Glacier.
