One of hundreds of streams

 

Fresh water flows into the sea water

 

Getting greener

 

Eerie fog

 

Another seal takes a look

 

Small islands surrounded us

 

Another stream

 

Serene

 

In route to Johns Hopkins Inlet

 

The ever-changing weather

 

Changing temperatures created the fog

 

Good time for a snack on the veranda

 

Searching for wild life

 

Saw few animals or birds here

 

Just a lot of rock

 

Ice field

 

Flows like a frozen river

 

Ice up above the waterline

 

Grassy rocks

 

Plants in every fissure

 

One eagle sighting

 

A thread of a waterfall

 

Descends from far up

 

Hidden in the crevice

 

Seeking its own level

 

Dirty ice

 

Good spot for the seals

 

Good spot for grazing goats

 

Sure looks like a road

 

But it is not

 

Ice berg

 

Several flows at this end

 

And more waterfalls

 

Springing out of the rocks

 

Rock cut by ancient ice

 

Johns Hopkins Glacier

 

Carries a lot of sediment

 

Bird in flight

 

Distinct colors

 

Little calving here

 

Quite rugged

 

And suddenly, ice fell

 

Disturbing the peace

 

There is a seal on the ice berg

 

We would see many of them soon

 

Calm waters

 

Until the ice fell again

 

Ice flow and glacier

 

All the small dots are seals

 

This is where they have their pups

 

Chucks of ice

 

A safe haven for the seals

 

Cod and dirty ice

 

Who knows how old this ice really is

 

A resting seal

 

Blubber keeps them warm

 

And they are safe from predators

 

A lone bald eagle on the ice

 

Thirty in one frame

 

Seals are used to the eagle

 

Exiting the inlet

 

No ice here

 

Waterfall

 

Looking for swimming seals

 

And also a good place for otters

 

Heading out of the bay
