Photo Friday: Camping in Tracy Arm Fjord
This week’s Photo Friday brings you the “Glacier in Your Grill” campsite setup from my 2016 kayak trip into Tracy Arm Fjord, part of the Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror Wilderness Area just south of Juneau, Alaska. After finding a relatively flat spot to pull our kayaks out of the water and hauling them as high as possible to avoid losing them to swells caused by glacial calvings, we picked this little flat spot amidst the strewn rocks. Less than a mile away, the North Sawyer Glacier rose 12+ stories out of the fjord, constantly casting ice into the water. Throughout the night, we could hear the thunder of ice crashing into the sea.
I managed to capture one of the biggest events that we witnessed that week on film. Check out my Kayaking Tracy Arm Fjord guide to see the video and how to do it yourself!
