This is a shot of the Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords NP with its run-off in the foreground; the glacier is just a bit north of Seward in the Kenai Peninsula. It is an alpine style glacier and sadly has been retreating very quickly across the past few decades
Here is the Portage Glacier which is located in the northern Kenai Peninsula; it is a classic Alpine Glacier
The Alaska Range is full of glaciers and there’s an unnamed glacier sweeping down from The Alaska Range foothills in this image taken from the Paxson end of the Denali Highway (AK 8). This image was taken in early September of 2002 and although it was snowy and cold in the immediate vicinity of the mountains just getting a few tens of miles to the north or south saw sunshine and air temps in the fifties.
The toe of the mighty Matanuska Glacier as seen from a school driveway off the Glenn Highway. This glacier cut the Matanuska Valley which runs for over 100 miles east-west and separates the Chugach Mountains to the south from the Talkeetna Mountains to the north
Just beyond the fall color tundra lies a portion of the Muldrow Glacier in Denali NP&P; it is the dark colored undulations that fade back towards The Alaska Range. This glacier originates from Denali and is the landing field for the bush planes transporting mountain climbers for an attempt to summit Denali. At one time this portion of the glacier was snowy and white but over time the winds in the Park have blown considerable soil onto the glacier and then local fauna has taken root and is actually growing on the soil covering the ice and snow.
The Matanuska Glacier is now but a pale shadow of the once mighty river of ice that carved out the Matanuska Valley between the Chugach Mountains to the south and the Talkeetna Mountains to the north. In this image the glacier is running straight into the center of the image before making a right turn to travel behind the hill on the right.
This close up of the Mendenhall Glacier illustrates why glaciers are best viewed under cloudy conditions
The Mendenhall Glacier with the Mendenhall Towers in the background reflect serenely in a portion of Lake Mendenhall. This glacier is what most folks associate with the town of Juneau.
The mighty Matanuska Glacier is responsible for the Matanuska Valley where giant squash, pumpkins and other vegetables are grown as well as the Matanuska River which forms a divide between the Chugach Mountains to the south and the Talkeetna Mountains to the north. This image was taken in early April, 2013.
