Exploring Tracy Arm

We could see the brilliant colours of these icebergs from a couple of miles away. Cloudy days are much better than sunny ones for capturing the blues of the glaciers, which get washed out in bright sunlight. At the mouth of Tracy Arm and adjoining Endicott Arm are shoals - the submerged terminal moraines of the Sawyer and Dawes Glaciers - and many of the larger icebergs get trapped there.
