When Alaska awakens from its winter slumber, bears emerge after long naps, migrating birds and whales begin returning, and the babies are born – Sitka fawns, sea otter pups, bear cubs!
There’s snow from sea to sky, the coast mountains are covered in it and jagged peaks and ridgelines contrast sharply against the indigo sea and sky. Raging waterfalls and drifting ice melt and waterfalls gush down fjord walls. Glaciers begin to calve filling waterways with bergy bits!
Before we break into poetry or song, let us add that days offer plenty of playtime, rain is less likely and there’s good odds for clearer skies – this is a prime time for spotting northern lights. Be the first to arrive in Southeast Alaska in the spring; no crowds in town, and no crowds on the water. This is true Alaska!
