Tracy Arm is a fjord locared in Alaska close to Juneau. It is named after Benjamin Franklin Tracy, Secretary of the Navy. Tracy Arm Fjord is about 72 km (45 miles) south of Juneau and 110 km (70 miles) north of Petersburg AK, off of Holkham Bay, adjacent to Stephens Passage within Tongass National Forest. It is also the heart of Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, which is designated by the US Congress in 1980.
The Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness encompasses 653 acres (2,643 km2) and consists of a couple of deep and narrow fjords: Endicott Arm and Tracy Arm. Both fjords are more than 30 miles (48 km) long and 1/5 of their area is covered in ice. In the summer, these fjords feature considerable floating ice that ranges from hand-sized to blocks as large as a 3-story building.
Sawyer Glaciers (North and South) are located at the Tracy Arm's end. The wildlife here includes bears (black and brown), deer, mountain goats, wolves, whales, seals, sea lions, birds (including Arctic terns, pigeon guillemots). Both glaciers also feature sheer faces of blue-colored ice climbing high up to the sky. With more luck you can witness ice calving (aka glacier calving) - the breaking off ice chunks at the edge of the glacier.
