Alaska, Glacier Bay Park &
Preserve, Canadian Rockies
On our first trip in August 1976, we encountered the gloom that can be Glacier Bay. For 5 days my wife and I waited in our tent at the
Bartlett Cove campground for the persistent rain and drizzle to end before heading up bay. We walked the mile from the campground to
the only developed part of this immense
, then, National Monument, over and over. There was a Ranger Station, boat dock and a small
lodge. Finally, we came to accept the reality that what the Park Ranger had told us on our arrival was coming true," the rain," he said,
"might not stop." So finally
, we boarded the small boat The Glacier Seal, that provide an up bay drop off service and ventured into the
vast wilderness of Glacier Bay.                                                                                                                     
It was still raining as they lowered the small rowboat into the iceberg filled waters of Muir Inlet, just off Wolf Point. Of the 6 people who
had planned to be dropped off that day we were the only ones to be ferried ashore in the endless rain. A small gravel beach
,
surrounded by tall cliffs
, greeted us. We quickly climbed up a few hundred feet before reaching the more gently sloping ground of
White Thunder Ridge. The reality of having told the Rangers to pick us up in a week settled over us. That first night we repeatedly heard

'The
Thunder'. We could only imagine it's source until the clearing skies of the next morning. Today, none of Muir Inlets glaciers are
active so it is ice free and silent. Below,
