Today we woke up early to a foggy morning in LeConte Bay and hopped right into our Zodiacs to explore. LeConte Bay is like an ice sculpture garden, full of glacier-blue pieces of ice that calved from nearby LeConte Glacier. We imagined the different shapes we could see in ice pieces, got on shore for a side-by-side comparison to see how big these icebergs can get, and enjoyed watching for birds that land on these pieces of ice.

We then headed to the quaint fishing town of Petersburg, where we participated in a variety of activities. Some of us walked through town to visit local shops, others hiked through the unique muskeg habitat of Southeast Alaska, and some even hopped into float planes to “flight-see” nearby glaciers.
