Wilderness, wildlife, wow! No wonder all the animals flock to this utopia of mountains, water, and ice. Whales waltz on through in spring, and the bald eagle--that enduring symbol of America--can be found in fall. Flex your fingers and load the film. Bears, beavers, and other cuties have all been known to appear unexpectedly before the camera's lens, and the awesome aesthetics of Glacier Bay present no less than 16 glaciers to capture. Profoundly remote, humanity exists only if you really look for it in the guise of forests lined with totem poles or remains of gold-rush towns.
