Glacier Bay National Park

Aug 15, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


George Vancouver never saw Glacier Bay, he just saw the face of a glacier back in 1794.  Since then, the retreating glaciers have made one of the most beautiful national parks in the United States, and this was our destination for the day.  From goats to glaciers, bears to Bartlett Cove, puffins to painting with glacial ice, there were plenty of reasons to be on the bow today!

About the Author

Kim Nesbitt

Naturalist/Expedition Diver

Kim moved around a lot growing up, spending time in Virginia, New Hampshire, and South Carolina before choosing to call Denver home. She fell in love with travel at an early age—visiting to all seven continents by age 24—and the outdoor culture of Colorado only fueled her love for nature. While completing her bachelor’s degree in biology and cognitive neuroscience at the University of Denver, she spent time living and conducting environmental research in Zanzibar, Tanzania, where her work studying groupers at a world-renowned marine protected area was later published. She earned her M.B.A. from both the University of Denver and Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, where she conducted research on sustainable tourism that will be used in the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Her combination of business and natural science experience has allowed her to consult with the United Nations Foundation, publish field guides, conduct genetics research, and develop university study abroad programs.
