Journal I : Expedition to Glacier Bay, Alaska, Summer 1890

August 12th

Weather good today[.] Prof. Muir, Mr. Cushing and McBride took the boat, Adams and I the canoe, and leaving camp at 12:20 started for a trip around upper part of Glacier Bay. After leaving the Inlet we found much ice and only succeeded on getting 2 or 3 miles up the bay. We camped on a grassy knoll, at 5 pm. we ascended 1000 ft to get a view up the bay but were not successful. Opposite to us and little way up are the two glaciers which almost [but?] against each other, and behind them the Fairweather Range are hidden in clouds.
