July 09, 2009 Tracey Arm Glacier Boat Trip leftArrowSmall.jpg rightArrowSmall.jpg home.gif


The major event for the day was a 7-hour boat trip to visit the Tracey Arm Glacier south of Juneau. The boat held about 45 passengers and was a perfect size for getting in and around inlets and icebergs. There were plenty of iceberg activity and the glacers were quite active.

An initial treat to find this eagle perched on a colorful iceberg
