Tracy Arm Fords Terror Wilderness is a beautiful protected area that we were lucky to get spend most of our day in. We woke early sailing through the glacially carved fjord of Tracy Arm surrounded but steep mountain peaks, as we made our way towards the very glacier that carved this area. South Sawyer glacier is a beautiful sight to see and many icebergs and seals were seen during our Zodiac cruise.
National Geographic Quest
Slight shifts are noticeable to the discerning eye aboard the National Geographic Quest . The days are shortening and darkness at night is deepening. The early bird guests aren’t up quite as early as previous evenings, as whale watching kept them up late. The beautiful hum of conversation envelops the lounge as guests share their experiences of wonder. Petersburg provided the backdrop for today’s activities: walks around the muskeg and Petersburg Mountain, Zodiac cruising amongst the fishing fleet and canneries, and bike riding with a short walk in some old growth forest. In the late afternoon on my return to the Quest , I espied a Bonaparte’s gull in the channel and wished him a good day.
