Report #4 Tracy Arm & Sawyer Glacier, Alaska July 6,2017 Friday Cloudy & 68 degrees Part #3 Of 3 36 Pictures

Last of the pictures…..

 

Too much ice

 

We had to slow to a crawl

 

Eventually we stopped at the end of the fjord

 

Getting interesting

 

Finally, the face of Sawyer Glacier

 

Listened for calving, but heard nothing

 

This boat had the best view

 

Yes, it was pretty cold here

 

Calving is a natural occurrence

 

Still had a good view

 

Lucky that we made it up here today

 

Sawyer Glacier

 

The oldest ice is blue

 

Eventually, we left

 

Ice is even deeper under the water

 

Bill and the Sawyer Glacier

 

A juvenile eagle

 

Spotty feathers

 

Eventually he will have white head and tail feathers

 

Soaring all alone

 

Calm seas in the fjord

 

Bald eagle - adult

 

Hunting

 

Maybe checking us out

 

What a thrill to see

 

Flying away

 

Side view

 

Again

 

Eagle eyes

 

On our way back out

 

This has to be a loon

 

Many islets near the mouth of the fjord

 

Trying to fly

 

Large and small boats

 

Different type of fishing boat

 

Many of these passed us
