Tuesday morning I picked Sarah up bright and early for our tour to the Tracy Arm Fjiord and Sawyer Glaciers. Each time I come see Sarah I try to take this tour - it is magnificent!!! Tracy Arm is about 45 miles from Juneau so it takes a couple of hours in the boat to get there.
We stopped along the way for some picture taking at Icy Falls. Captain Rusty got the boat really close to the falls - so close you could almost reach out and touch them. We also stopped and watched the humpback whales a few times on the way out. I wasn't successful getting pictures of them this trip but they are always fun to watch. The closer you get to the Sawyer Glaciers the more icebergs you see in the water. There were even some harbor seals napping on several. We didn't get too close because they don't like to disturb them - after all it is their territory.
First we went to the North Sawyer Glacier and spent about an hour there. We saw it calve several times and just enjoyed the beauty of it all. We were also able to go to the South Sawyer Glacier and see it. It is smaller than the North Glacier.

Wonderful but exhausting day!!!
