A 7-hour cruise onboard the M/V Aurora

The Alaska Marine Highway ferry Aurora departed Whittier Aug. 6, headed to Cordova. Bright, sunny skies accompanied the vessel through Prince William Sound, providing optimal conditions for onboard photographers to capture Alaska’s beauty, fishing boats and tenders, and pleasure craft. It was just another day in Alaska.
