11 June – Misty Fjords National Monument

Water above and below

rain 50 °F

This morning we sailed through part of Misty Fjords National Monument. It was very rainy in the morning, thus the water above and below.

This place is renowned for its spectacular scenery and majestic waterfalls. It did not disappoint. After lunch, the ship anchored in a protected cove and the rain let up. We did a “free paddle” where we could take the kayak anywhere we wanted as long as we could still see the ship. We spent a couple hours paddling about enjoying the scenery. We encountered a few seals but did not see any bears or other land dwelling creatures.

A photo of some "Polar Bear Plunge" participants, who were jumping off the kayak-launching platform. (In case you were wondering what the kayak-launching platform looked like.)
