At Seward, we went on a pelagic boat trip on Resurrection Bay in Kenai Fjords National Park. It was a calm but gray and drizzly day. We saw many birds and some mammals. Birds included puffins, murres, murrelets, auklets, cormorants, gulls, kittiwakes, and pigeon guillemot. Mammals included sea otters, the endangered Steller’s sealion, humpbacked whales, and a dead gray whale. However, because of distance and boat motion, conditions were unsatisfactory for wildlife photography. This photo shows the Tidewater Glaciers with the Ojay Glacier on the left and the Northwestern Glacier on the right. They are so named because the ice from the glaciers goes directly into the salt water of the bay. The bright ice is rather dramatic in a scene which is otherwise gloomy and gray. On a sunny day, the glare might have been too great for photography.
