The entire day was spent in Glacier Bay National Park. On our way up the bay there were wonderful views of sea birds on the Marble Islands. There was also a chance to see a few humpback whales feeding close to the islands as well. The weather was once again great, especially for Glacier Bay. Mt Fairweather, a 15,300 foot peak, could be seen off to the west. The day was spent travelling towards the northern end of the park where the Margerie and Grand Pacific glaciers meet and calve off huge pieces of ice into the bay. We stopped in Tidal Inlet to take a look at a huge outwash plain of rock material and possibly to find bears. The picture is of the outwash plain and the U-shaped valley carved by one of the many glaciers that have now retreated up into the ice fields that surround Glacier Bay.
