Lake Eva & Chatham Strait, 7/25/2022, National Geographic Quest

We dropped on to the beach bright and early to explore Lake Eva. A cool morning of overcast skies soon gave way to a warmer midday of overcast skies. Hikers of all speeds set out to discover the magic of the temperate rainforest. Salmon jumped at the base of cascading water on their journey to spawn in the lake and stream. A number of songbirds provided a delightful soundtrack for us as we wound our way through the verdant paradise.

In the afternoon, we cruised Chatham Strait where a group of humpback whales was observed bubble-net feeding. We watched as the six leviathans circled and lunged, working their way through balls of schooling fish.
