Such a lovely day it was for our various activities! In Petersburg we enjoyed Zodiac rides around the harbor, exploring fleets of fishing vessels and flocks of fishing birds. Cycle enthusiasts pedaled their way across town to explore a sandy beach and examine a wild muskeg. After lunch, hikes made their way amongst the miniature and magnificent elements of the temperate rainforest along Cascade Creek. Rain did not dampen the spirits of those who truly love this wilderness.

A fine and adventurous day was awarded to us on our last chance to explore Southeast Alaska on this voyage. We anchored in the morning at Ushk Bay just between Baraknof and Chicagof Islands. We spent the morning exploring the vast beach, meadows, and forests that make this area so special and wild. Salmon were making their final push upstream while the less lucky fishes lay as carcasses along the streams. We have learned and seen so much in our short time in Southeast Alaska and it has never disappointed.
