The Bore Tide of Turnagain Arm

It is a little bit difficult to see, but this is the Bore Tide that comes up the Turnagain Arm. It varies in size from very small, just inches, to about 6 feet. This one was about 1 foot but looked more like a wave because there was no wind to push it up. The inlet was perfectly calm and this bore tide just came straight up the inlet and took over the sandbars. It was pretty cool. Some visitors were a little disappointed in the size, but big or little it was pretty amazing watching it come up the Arm.
