Superlative scenery: Glacier Bay, balmy at 57 degrees F
The hardiest souls: fish wheels count salmon for the fishermen who sustain themselves over the winter with their yearly catch.
Most majestic bird: bald eagles come to this sanctuary for the salmon fishing, too.
The best graffiti: ship captains who've docked at Skagway's wharf
The most scenic fjord: this is what glaciers leave behind when they retreat.
