LeConte Glacier and Petersburg

  • Aboard the National Geographic Quest
  • Alaska

LeConte Glacier has an uncanny ability to produce larger than life icebergs in every shade of blue the eye can see. This morning we took to Zodiacs to get a closer look at these towering behemoths and test out our newly acquired photography skills. Often called the iceberg museum, LeConte Bay did not disappoint us with its countless bergs and active sea life. From there we popped across the way to Petersburg, the town that salmon built. We spent the afternoon exploring the muskeg, biking the beaches, and cruising with the salmon boats. While in town, we bought a feast of locally caught Dungeness crabs, and proceeded to have a delicious (albeit messy) dinner.
