Today we awoke early in Glacier Bay and gathered on the bow as we approached the Johns Hopkins Glacier. Low clouds and mist moved in and out of the mountains around us and stayed close throughout the day. After breakfast, we found ourselves at Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers at the northernmost end of the bay before we started heading the sixty-five miles south to Bartlett Cove at the park entrance. Along the way, we spotted brown bears, humpback whales, sea otters, and harbor seals. A stop at South Marble Island was a great opportunity for birding, where we got a look at tufted puffins, pelagic cormorants, marbled murrelets, and many others. We finished our day with a post-dinner hike on the trails at Bartlett Cove – a lovely way to end a beautiful experience in the park!
