Our last day began quiet and still as a light drizzle fell, and broken, misty clouds hung low over the water. We crossed the shallow bar in Holkham Bay into the long fjord of Endicott Arm. The narrowing marine pathway winds more than twenty miles deep into the mountain wilderness on the border of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia. Carved thousands of years ago by the Dawes Glacier, we sailed near the face of the current glacier terminus.
