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.
