We visited Tracy Arm Fjord today to see the carved valleys left behind by the retreating Dawes Glacier. Early morning vigilance was rewarded when we spotted a black bear, foraging along the high tide line, and a humpback whale. After a hearty Alaskan breakfast, we took off in expedition landing crafts to view the South Dawes glacier, where we observed awe-inspiring calving and spectacular shooters. For the harbor seals basking on the ice floes, it was just another day in the fjord. The afternoon at Williams Cove was spent hiking among Sitka spruce and western hemlock, unlocking the mysteries of the old-growth forest.
