We anchored in Pavlof Harbor this morning under a thin cover of clouds, the most we have seen all week long. The day looked promising for hiking and kayaking. It turned out to be great for brown bear viewing and Zodiac driving lessons as well. We explored the temperate rain forest one last time and took the opportunity to sit quietly and contemplate its beauty, fragility and expansiveness. Global explorers investigated the tiny aspects as they conducted a plankton tow and viewed their diminutive catch under the video microscope. The world is swarming with life; it just depends on where you look, and how hard you look. Perhaps this voyage has changed a few perspectives.


A poem shared by Davy Fallon:

We saw two glaciers,

We saw wildlife as well,

I love Alaska!
