Ketchikan to Glacier Bay National Park

We left Ketchikan on the Alaska Ferry about 9am. Our next stops were Wrangell and Petersburg. We were only in each port for 45 minutes so we didn’t get off. Between Wrangell and Petersburg we went through the Wrangell Narrows. The narrows are narrow! They only have enough water depth to allow the ferry to go through at high tide so the whole schedule is built to plan to be in the narrows then.

As a result we arrived in Juneau at 3:15 am. One of the vehicles unloading in Juneau was a giant RV with lettering on it for the CSPAN fifty capitals tour. I wonder what that is.

We waited in the Juneau ferry terminal until six am to board our ferry for Gustavos, the port for Glacier Bay National Park. The ferry ride was four hours and I slept the whole way.

We are staying at the lodge in the park. We had a stunning sunny day to explore around the lodge. We took a short hike and saw a moose cow and her baby!
