Today is Glacier Bay day! And what a day we had. We woke this morning to welcome our park ranger guests and off we set to explore the park. Our rangers are here as our hosts, teaching us about the park and her inhabitants.

First stop was South Marble Island to look for puffins, as well as other wildlife. We found tufted-puffins, heaps actually. Next, we went to Gloomy Nob, and we hit the jackpot! Starting off with sea otters floating everywhere. Then we spotted mountain goats, a black bear, a couple of coastal brown bears napping, and a couple of wolves, one black and one grey. It was an insane two hours of sightings!

Onward we traveled toward Marjorie Glacier, enjoying the awe-inspiring scenery. Once we arrived at the glacier face, a silence came over us all – to stand in the beauty of both the grand Pacific and Marjorie was something for which we all felt grateful.
