Tracey Arm

Aug 30, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion

I loved this day! We spent the morning hiking and kayaking and exploring in Williams Cove, a delightful small inlet near the mouth of Tracey Arm Fjord.  There were no spectacular sightings of bears, mountain goats, and killer whales, oh my, like yesterday, but the cove is imbued with a deep sense of peace, beauty, and mystery.  Our afternoon was different: instead of quiet forest walks and serene water time, our time was spent in our trusty Zodiacs exploring the South Sawyer Glacier and the vast, dynamic, extraordinary landscapes and seascapes at the head of Tracey Arm.
