Have your rubber boots handy. You're in for muskeg and mud in Alaska's backcountry. Hiking along Baird Glacier's moraine, look for shimmers of gold and quartz—this area is known for it. The glacial outwash plains look almost lunar, but you're not alone in this moonscape. The glacial valley is a nesting hot-spot for Arctic terns. Splash away the mud before a paddle along the bay's mossy cliff walls. Back onboard, it's time for a cocktail and a soak in the hot tub.,
