On the Wilderness Explorer’s arrival in Bartlett Cove, our first stop in Glacier Bay National Park, I disembarked the boat in the Alaskan rain that makes even the hardiest reassess the idea of venturing out. I expected almost no participants to show up for my one mile loop hike. Then, like a multi-colored vision of hope, I soon had twelve hikers suited up in varying colors of Gore-Tex standing before me.
As the Wilderness Explorer winds down her inaugural Alaska season, I decided to ask my fellow crew members to share some of their fondest memories of the summer for this week’s blog post.
Our maiden voyage into Glacier Bay aboard the Wilderness Explorer lived up to our vessel’s name-it was both exploratory and wild.
