STUPENDOUS GLACIERS

Mendenhall Glacier- Juneau, Alaska

“Glaciers are delicate and individual things, like humans. Instability is built into them.”
Will Harrison


Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska




“Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.”
Orison Swett Marden

Dave- When do you want to go?
Barbara- Hopefully they won't ALL melt away in our lifetime. If so, we have bigger problems.
Akela- That's why one goes to Alaska in the summertime. Snow is usually gone by August, although not this year. And, you can be on a cozy ship with a heated hot tub as you watch the glaciers slide by.
Steve- Only you! HAHA- and yes I DID take every single one of them
