Tracy Arm

A bunch of us from work all went on the Tracy Arm Tour. It was a 10 hour boat ride out to the Sawyer Glaciers. Those glaciers go right into the ocean. As the boat got closer and closer there were more and more icebergs. It was one of the most beautiful things we have seen. The glaciers are continuously calving or in other words breaking off all the time. Our boat was able to get pretty close to the smaller of the two glaciers and we watched several chunks break off and fall into the water. It was so loud we could only imagine how loud it would be when one of the really big chunks broke off. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any of the larger chunks break. There were so many harbor seals lounging around on the icebergs. Seriously this was one of the coolest things we have done in Alaska.
