Glacier Bay Explorer

Every spring and fall, a magical and ancient sound falls from the skies of Glacier Bay. Lesser Sandhill Cranes stop over in Glacier Bay as they migrate up and down along the western edge of North America. This shot was taken near the Brady Glacier (seen along the very bottom edge of the image) with the Fairweather Mountains glowing in the morning light. Here, a hundred or more cranes work their way south through Glacier Bay as they have for millennia.
