Our expedition began with an instant highlight! I’m talking, of course, about glacier day! Some 35 miles into Endicott Arm is Dawes Glacier, one of four glaciers fed by the Stikine Icefield. Dawes is a true masterpiece. It is 1 mile wide at its face, 250 feet high, brilliant blue, and actively calving. And to get there, we journeyed past a 45-ton whale, beneath peaks of plutonic rock experiencing tectonic uplift, among the crush and tumble of icebergs, and through high winds blasting off the glacier. Oh, and did I mention the Vikings?
