Online Couch Trip Series: Prince William Sound

There are over 10,000 glaciers in Prince William Sound—explore their unique and beautiful terrain with long-time Alaska residents Laura Thorpe, Martin Cary and their daughter Haley as they explore the ice fields, fjords, islands, majestic peaks, and of course, the ocean in this interstitial, pristine pocket of the world beyond the edge of civilization. Discover porpoises, otters and whales who inhabit the Sound. Learn about the typography, geology and natural history, as well as the human impact on the region, including the ravages inflicted by the Exxon Valdez.
 
Laura Thorpe is a biologist and Martin Cary a tech guru, whose jobs and wanderings have brought them to the far reaches of Alaska, including the North Slope where they once lived with a pack of sled dogs and a neighborhood full of polar bears. Their daughter Haley is a photographer and has traveled the world in search of a good photo op.
