July 7 Clearing Skies and Margerie Glacier

The morning of July 7th brought no rain and gradually clearing skies as the fog began to lift. We spent a couple of hours photographing around Tarr Inlet, Margerie Glacier and the Grand Pacific Glacier. We observed several small Margerie Glacier calvings, and the whole time we were the only boat in front of the Glacier. The sounds of the cracking ice are always awe inspiring in a remote location with no other boats or people around!

Here is a photograph of Margerie Glacier with the Mountains behind as the fog lifted.

We then cruised south out of Tarr Inlet, into the Johns Hopkins Inlet photographing Lamplugh Glacier, Topeka Glacier (hanging) and the John Hopkins Glacier. We had to photograph Johns Hopkins Glacier from a distance, since the Johns Hopkins Inlet is closed until mid July due to Harbor Seal pupping.
