Early this morning as we pulled into the dock at Bartlett Cove as fog covered the dramatic landscape in the distance. Some guests chose to get out and stretch their legs with a hike, and this offered a new look into the forests of Southeast Alaska. After our pre-breakfast activities we started cruising through the park, and the fog lifted to unveil the Fairweather Mountains. This dramatic coastal mountain range goes from sea level to 15,000 feet in just twelve miles. Our afternoon was spent looking for wildlife and watching tidewater glaciers calve into the bay.
