Kathy Explores Endicott Arm

05-29-2012

By Kathy VanWulf Scat, Special Guest Crew Member, Wilderness Discoverer, Endicott Arm, Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, Southeast Alaska

Clear blue skies, Dawes Glacier dead ahead as the Wilderness Discoverer creeps and budges into the bergy bits crackling around us.

Mountain goats being spotted as arctic terns glide overhead and harbor seals poke their heads up out of the water to check us out. Ice calving off the face of this tidewater glacier creates an echoing boom as it hits the water.

After getting a more up close and personal look out in a small boat, I returned home to be greeted by hot chocolate laced with Peppermint Schnapps and jumped in the hot tub to warm up.

This bear attacked the Wilderness Discoverer and invaded guest spaces. She may also be known as Kim Dahm, Expedition Guide.
