glaciers over the Cook Inlet

Glaciers!

We fly by glaciers near the mouth of the Cook Inlet.



These icebergs are chunks
that have broken off the
glacier below. They float
in the lake trapped by the
terminal moraine.

Below: Our pilot takes us in 'up close and personal' to this
piedmont glacier. The terminal moriane had isolated this glacier
from the sea. Icebergs float in the lake trapped by the moraine.

Coal stains much of the ice in this glacier.
