Water, water everywhere

Nov. 23 – The Fiord

It rained. It stopped. It misted. It stopped. The cycle repeated But that was actually a good thing since the rain creates lots of waterfallls to see on the sail up the fiord. The soil on top of the rocks is very shallow and can't hold very much water, so it runs off immediately, creating gorgeous waterfalls.

The ship we were on has a shallow draft and the sides of the fiord are steep enough that the captain of the ship put the ship's bow right under a couple of the waterfalls. It was difficult taking pictures of waterfalls in the rain and keep our cameras dry, but we made a good go of it.
