I stopped by the glacier on my way home from work and found these icebergs.
All of the warm weather (in the 50s) we’ve been having lately has melted the last of the ice on Mendenhall Lake. Looking at these pictures you might disagree with me… What I mean is that the lake ice from last winter has finally thawed releasing all of the icebergs that were trapped closer to the glacier. There is a slight current in the lake that will gradually push them away from the visitor’s center.
So even though you can come here any time of year and see icebergs this is the one time when you can get so close to so many on foot.
I sat on a rock and listened to the ice until it started to get dark. I took this picture on my way back – at the time I thought there wasn’t enough light but I’m happy with how it turned out.
I hope you liked the pictures!
And if you’re curious why glacier ice is blue go here.
