During a flightseeing tour over Glacier Bay NP we had a dramatic view at the 12-mile-long John Hopkins Glacier. The glaciers seen here today are remnants of a general ice advance- the Little Ice Age- that began about 4,000 years ago. In 1890, geologist Harry Fielding Reid discovered the glacier and proudly named it toe John Hopkins, a philanthropist and founder of the eponymous university and hospital. He also named the smaller glacier on the left to Daniel Coit Gilman, the first president of the university. For more backgroundstories and Alaska webgalleries: www.michelhammann-photography.com

The 25 mile long Grand Pacific Glacier begins at Grand Pacific Pass in the St. Elias Mountains. This river of ice trends east into the Stikine Region of British Columbia, and then southeast to the head of Tarr Inlet at the Alaska-Canada boundary.

Glacier Bay National Park (Southeast Alaska) is home to twelve tidewater glaciers that calve icebergs into the bay. In part because of variations in snow accumulations, most glaciers in the eastern and southwestern areas of the bay are receding, while several on its west side are advancing. When Capt. George Vancouver sailed the Alaska coast in 1794, Glacier Bay did not exist. It lay beneath a sheet of glacial ice several miles wide and thousands of feet thick. Since then, in one of the fastest glacial retreats on record, the ice has shrunk back 65 miles (105 kilometers) to unveil new land and a new bay. There are no roads to Glacier Bay and entry into this park by boat is carefully regulated. The ultimate way to visit this National Park is… by air!

A glacier created in the high peaks of the St. Elias Mountains (Alaska). Over time, falling snow piles up in mountain recesses, and ever so slowly the weight of accumulating snow compact lower layers into dense ice. When the ice becomes thick enough, it starts to remove downhill. This shot was made on a flight over Glacier Bay National Park For more Alaska and US web galleries: www.michelhammann-photography.com
