Coral Princess left the fishing fleet behind and turned into the fjord.
We could then see the first of the glaciers more clearly.
College Fjord was given its name by an expedition back in the day, who exploring the area. The glaciers are all named after East Coast colleges except for Princeton. This apparently was not a popular college with the academics on board the research ship!
I lost count of the glaciers as we went up the fjord. We were heading for the Yale and Harvard glaciers.
The Harvard Glacier is one of the few glaciers that are still advancing in Alaska. This is because its snow field is still receiving lots of snow. To our right we were told to look for bears as this was part of the fjord was known as a place for them.
The Harvard was striped with all the material pushed down by its tributary glaciers. We were close to the Yale Glacier as we neared the Harvard. This was another mile wide glacier and it towered hundreds of feet into the air. Both of these glaciers are at the head of the fjord and the ship did not go as close to them as the Margerie Glacier yesterday.
These are some of the views.
At 6.20 pm the forward deck was still busy as we turned back down the fjord.
