Today’s trip into Glacier Bay National Park started on a different note from any I’ve taken previously. We had stopped in Bartlett’s Cove last night to pick up Ranger Chelsea, and our Alaskan Native Interpreter Mary, then worked our way up-bay to Johns Hopkins Glacier while we all slept. Thus, we awoke to clear skies, cool temps, and the majesty of Johns Hopkins Glacier—how superb! All was not quiet at the glacier, and we were treated to several awe-inspiring and very loud calving events before we pointed our bow to the south for our trip through the park. On the way south we saw much wildlife, including brown bears, mountain goats, tufted puffins, Stellar sea lions, sea otters, and much more of Alaska’s wildlife heritage.
