The day aboard National Geographic Sea Bird in Misty Fjords National Monument began with favorable morning weather, offering a majestic backdrop for our journey. As we traversed Owl's Pass and dropped anchor in God's Pocket, we embarked on Zodiac cruises to explore the surroundings.

Amidst the rugged expanse of Misty Fjords, we admired the granite walls, a sight once described by John Muir as the Yosemite of the North. As we continue south, the landscape is more forested, further removed from a time of glaciers. We admire the forest’s edge, the intertidal zones, and the snowmelt waterfalls sprinkled along the fjord.
