Another sunny day greeted us, this time in a bay on the north side of Icy Strait. Dundas Bay lies within the 3.3 million acres of Glacier Bay National Park. Views of towering peaks from the southern end of the Fairweather Range delighted us, their visages rising upwards of 12,726 feet. Mount La Perouse, Mount Crillon, Mount Bertha, and others remind us that great geologic forces are still at work in this National Park area, recognized as a World Heritage Site. We savor our time here, enjoying kayaking, tours by Zodiac, and hiking in the meadows adorning the bay. Our bootsteps land in those of brown bear, moose, and wolves. This truly is a wilderness to behold.
