Glaciers

Glacier Bay, Alaska

 

Here are two beautiful glaciers that I was fortunate enough to see in Alaska.

The first, in Juneau, was accessible by a 45 minute hike and included a waterfall on the right. The second and larger glacier was accessible only by water in Glacier Bay.  I remember being here 23 years ago and this glacier was a bit larger as glaciers are shrinking all the time.

It is mind boggling to consider that the water/ice/snow in these glaciers helped create this massive beauty before we were born; might I say even before Alaska was “discovered”.  As we sailed through Glacier Bay, we were told by the ranger who was giving a most impressive  and knowledgeable history of the area, that the whole bay, a few miles long, was once covered by this glacier.  It felt like being in the past, here, in Alaska.

About Anne Pflug

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
