Our 5th trip to Tracy Arm/Ford’s Terror Wilderness Area of 2015 brought with it clear views of Sumdum Glacier.  This was the 3rd trip aboard Ursa Major for our fearless travelers from Ohio and Indiana, and their first to Dawe’s Glacier in Endicott Arm.  On their 2nd trip with us in 2013, we visited Sawyer and South Sawyer Glaciers in Tracy Arm.  On this trip into Endicott Arm, we also had the pleasure of anchoring in one of our favorite places, Ford’s Terror.  The tidal drop in Ford’s Terror was 22 feet during our stay there, and we were treated to visits by numerous harbor seals, pigeon gillemots, and harbor porpoise while at anchor.
