“There are days in Southeast Alaska remembered for epic events, the kind of experiences that burn into your memory...Then there are days like this one.”

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor Jim Pfitzer's dispatch from the National Geographic Quest in Alaska's Keku Islands could easily be applied to every place we travel. This week's voyages in Norway, Polynesia, the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon, and Alaska demonstrated that even the most "ordinary" days on our expeditions are full of wonder and surprise. (But there were certainly plenty of epic moments as well!)
