As we worked our way up Tracy Arm, the fjord leading toward Sawyer glacier – the wonder of the surrounding wilderness brought about a sense of awe and reverrence amongst everyone on the ship.
We traveled silently, slowly making our way past the floating chunks of ice ----the air turning colder the closer we got to the glacier itself.
Big and Blue ---this is Sawyer Glacier in the center of the photo.
We were lucky enough to have the sun peeking through the clouds – and the reflection of the mountains in the icy water was beautiful.
Sawyer Glacier was as far as we could go. The ship turned slowly, all the way around – and we headed back out the way we came in watching the ice float all around us.
I’ve uploaded all the scenery shots into a slide show. If you can’t view the slide show on your mobile device, click the image below to be taken directly to the photo album.
