Jumping into Glacier Bay, Alaska

Water temperature approximately 37 degrees. After a week absorbing the phenomenal beauty of Alaska's inner passage, it was great to take the absolute plunge! The water was silty from the glaciers that feed into it, but felt fantastic. I jumped in twice!

Glacier Bay is accessible by ship or kayak and is one of the great wilderness areas of the US.
