Turnagain Spring

Just south of Anchorage, Alaska lies 40-mile long Turnagain Arm, a branch of the North Pacific Ocean. While searching for the Northwest Passage,
Captain Cook sailed into upper Cook Inlet and discovered this bay leading to the east. Thinking that it may have been the route he sought, he sailed
eastward, only to be forced to turn around when he reached the end. His disappointment was so great that he named this area "Turnagain Arm".
This panorama was taken during the early spring when the days are getting longer and the Arm is warmed by the rising sun. If you look closely,
you'll see remnants of winter ice floes, which choked the Arm just a few weeks earlier.
