Tracy Arm

Today we cruised into the Tracy Arm from the Stephens Passage. The Tracy arm is a fjord with royal blue colored icebergs that have calves off the South Sawyer glacier. We kayaked around the icebergs keeping our distance as only 10 percent of the bergs are above the surface and they frequently tip over. The South Sawyer glacier has been retreating over the last 50 years.

We then took a photo hike through the temperate rain forest with Spruce trees, cottonwood, moss and lichens. There was many Salmon berry brushes of red to yellow color.
