This 20-mile-long fjord, chiseled from Yosemite-like granite rocks, encompasses countless waterfalls, huge icebergs, and mountain peaks that reach more than 5,000 feet. It is one of two 25 mile long fjords with tidewater glaciers at the head leading off Holkham Bay, the other is Tracy Arm. Search the cliffs for mountain goats scaling the near-vertical rock faces, see black bears strolling the shores, and listen to the sounds of harbour seals hauled out on ice floes. This steep-sided fjord, lies 50 miles southeast of Juneau on the east side of Stephens Passage. Just before the end of the fjord at North Dawes Glacier you will find Ford's Terror, a canyon of water that turns to a torrent when the tide retreats.
