Glenn Highway, June 21, 2001


Our first look at Matanuska Glacier, seen from the Glenn Highway. [800x600][1600x1200]

A 10x zoom is useful at times like this. [800x600][1600x1200]

The rest of these pictures are taken at the Matanuska Glacier State Recreation Site. It's interesting that there are equatorial glaciers in South America. [800x600][1600x1200]

Glaciers are slow-moving, but maybe not as slow as you think. I think we read somewhere that this glacier moves about 1 foot per day, and has been stable (ending around the same point) for about 400 years. [800x600][1600x1200]

Another look. [800x600][1600x1200]

And another zoom in. [800x600][1600x1200]
