South Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness rarely witnesses a beautiful and sunny day. The surrounding Tongass National Forest is called a temperate rainforest because of the reliability of precipitation. Today, however, was marked by radiant illumination. We toured the fjord by ship and took to small boats in the morning. We navigated amongst the ice and harbor seals towards the magnificent calving face of the South Sawyer Glacier. After lunch, the ship slowly cruised down-fjord to visit the legendary Hole-in-the-Wall Waterfall. We wound down the day with a final recap from the staff and a farewell dinner. We will all miss Alaska, and we are grateful for the experiences we shared here.
