Misty Fiords, Alaska

Jun 23, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Bird


This morning, we awoke to the patter of rain on the deck and bow. As rain came and passed, our ship was expertly navigated through the narrow fjords and waterways of Misty Fiords National Monument. First, we kayaked and explored via Zodiac in Walker Cove then we watched as the ship made a narrow pass through Owl’s Cove into Rudyard Bay. These towering walls, cut by waterfalls that seemed to fall from heaven, provided a truly epic scene.
