On Friday morning we dinghied over to Reid Glacier and walked around for an hour or so, exploring the ice and rocks and waterfalls. It’s difficult to explain just how cool this was, so I’m going to post a ton of photos instead of words.
Sam and Anna in the fast dinghy:

Deke with the long lens:
It’s like being on another planet!
We found a few bear prints in the mud (that’s an iPhone 6…not 6 plus…for scale):
Airship and Safe Harbour, rafted (with the Grand Pacific Glacier far in the background):
Back on board we made a delicious brunch. Sam and Anna made potato waffles (hash-browns mixed with egg and spices cooked in the waffle maker) and I made a pan of cheesy scrambled eggs to go with ’em.
Next stop: Lamplugh Glacier and Johns Hopkins Inlet (with many, many more glacier photos).
