Sep 08, 2018 - National Geographic Quest
Today we spent our day surrounded by, and in awe of, the natural beauty of Misty Fjords National Monument. In the wee hours of the morn we made our way into Rudyard Bay. There, we strained our necks up the steeping granite walls which disappeared into the mist and clouds above. Once we reached the end of the fjord, we were greeted by a mother brown bear and her two cubs of the year. We deployed our Zodiacs, spent our time exploring this area and watched National Geographic Quest make its way through Owl Pass.
In the afternoon we headed back to the entrance, but not before making a stop in Punchbowl Cove where the bravest among us participated in a Polar Plunge. Leaping into the frigid Alaskan waters. As we made our way out of Rudyard Bay we looked south as tomorrow morning we would awake in Canadian waters.
