To wake up in a spectacular fjord and spend the entire day with ice is the perfect way to end an amazing trip. We had such a wonderful, fully packed day, all in one of my favorite places on the planet, Tracy Arm - Ford’s Terror Wilderness Area. This was our second Wilderness (notice the capital W) area of this expedition, and it makes me happy to see such a high level of protection on this land.
National Geographic Sea Lion
Today our guests aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion awoke about halfway up the bay here in Glacier Bay National Park. We had ideal weather today as we cruised up to Johns Hopkins Glacier and then down the east side of the park. Bears, ice, goats, and orcas kept everyone enthralled throughout the day, only to finish the evening with a nice bonfire at Tidelines Institute in the Inian Islands.
