JUNEAU - Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve has a new superintendent at the helm.
Cherry Payne has traded the balmy byways of the Florida Everglades for the glacial-fed waters of Southeast Alaska.
A 30-year veteran of the park service, Payne was most recently the chief of interpretation and visitor services at Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks.
She also served as acting superintendent at Cape Lookout National Seashore in North Carolina and at Canaveral National Seashore in Florida.
Payne replaces former superintendent Tomie Lee, who retired last year.
Glacier Bay is expecting 153 cruise ship calls this year.
