This is a day that will be remembered the rest of our lives. We caught the 56 foot Adventure Bound boat at 8:00 AM in Juneau and traveled south for several hours to the Tracy Arm Fjord and Sawyer Glaciers. The trip down was through unbelievably beautiful mountains raising from the sea, uninhabited by humans, but the wild occasional bears, eagles, goats , seals and humpback whales. The boat would stop
along the way so we could get close up to the wild life. As we arrived at the fjord Steve Weber, the Captain and owner of the boat slowly drove through the icebergs and iceflows to get us to about 400 yards from the Sawyer Glacier. This may be one of the best reasons for traveling Alaska by road and ferry and not just a cruise ship. The cruise ships cannot get a view of the Sawyer glaciers because of the icebergs. We had about 30 people with us on the boat and were served in the cabin by Tim Treadwell, a college geology student, his father is the current Lt. Governor of Alaska. We arrived back in Juneau around 6:30 PM.
Words will not describe the experience. We think the pictures better tell the story, please enjoy, we sure did.
Holy cow. I am so amazed by these pictures. Guess we’ll have to add Alaska to our dream list. Awesome photos…I’d love to see more someday! Enjoy!
