A Hike in the Fjord

Yesterday’s hike was quite spectacular: 3-4 miles on spongy tundra, mud and rock only to find a spectacular glacier at the end of it… Everywhere you turn it is a photo you have to take and yet the photos just don’t do it justice. Our geologist on board told us yesterday that the rocks around us in this fjord are over 1 billion years old…
