Five years as a guide in Glacier Bay National Park and 12 years guiding in Alaska and southeast Alaska still takes my breath away. Today I woke up to one of the few bluebird days that we have had this summer and guided an all-day kayak in Muir Inlet in the east arm of Glacier Bay National Park.
The group continued to move along the river’s edge, climbing over and under logs, wading ankle-deep in the water and bushwhacking through the scrubby undergrowth.
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 day of adventure began with peaceful whale watching in Dundas Bay inside Glacier Bay National Park.
We found GOLD in Southeast Alaska. Did we strike it rich? Well, it depends on who you ask.
