Alaska Cruise – 08/08/95

TUES. 8/8 We are in the waters near Hubbard Glacier. This glacier was named for the founder of the National Geographic magazine. This glacier made the news back in 1986 when it “galloped” across Russell Fjord blocking it and trapping sea¬†creatures from June until October when the dam broke releasing them. Graham Sunderland, our Naturalist aboard, narrated the trips to these glaciers, also telling us about the geology and natures of glaciers. It has been a beautiful and exciting day. On to Yakatat Bay and Sitka. We anchored at 2 AM. What a racket!!!
