Day 4... Tracy Arm Fjord - Sawyer Glacier

We traveled all night to get to the Tracy Arm Fjord. It is named after a Civil War general named Benjamin Franklin Tracy. It is located about 45 miles south of Juneau.

Entering Tracy Arm

Starting to see ice bergs...

There was water and waterfalls everywhere we looked.
We saw mountain goats towards the top of the mountains and
of course bald eagles and sea otters!

You can see Sawyer Glacier just around the bend.

Because it was overcast, the icebergs and glacier were blue.
I like to describe them as Windex blue! :o)


Hundreds and hundreds of mini icebergs...

The pictures can't even come close to depicting the beauty and brilliance of the glacier.
It was chilly that day but a mug (or two) of Baileys and coffee hit the spot!
Next stop: Ketchikan - first city of southeast Alaska!
