Alaskan Cruise Day 4: Tracy Arm

The fourth day of the cruise was spent entirely on the boat driving up a very narrow waterway to a glacier at the end. Steep mountains rose up out of the water to either side of the boat and were so close I felt like people on either side of the boat could almost reach out and scrape moss of the sides of the rocks. It was so beautiful I made myself dizzy spinning around trying to see everything at once.

As we got closer and closer to the glacier the water filled up with huge icebergs that had recently calved off the face of the blue monster. It was amazing to see our boat effortlessly skim through all these submerged behemoths.
