National Geographic Resolution made her way to the farthest point north that she will venture on our expedition. We explored pack ice at about 80 and even 81 degrees north. Keen eyes on the bridge spotted walruses and seals, and refreshments flowed onboard with spectacular abundance and quality. At the end of the day, we were treated to a view of “sea smoke,” an amazing phenomenon when the ocean (the Arctic Ocean!) is much warmer than the surrounding air, and steam rises from the waves.
