Endicott Arm

May 21, 2018 - National Geographic Quest

This is a “Wild unfinished Yosemite…its domes swell against the sky in fine lines as lofty and as perfect in form as those of the California Valley, and rock trunks stand forward, as sheer and as nobly sculpted. No ice work that I have ever seen surpasses this, either in the magnitude of the features or effectiveness of composition.”


- John Muir 1880


We are off to an outstanding start on our first full day here aboard National Geographic Quest. Today we explored Endicott Arm up to the scenic and actively calving Dawes Glacier. We explored by Zodiac to have an up-close view.
