Hubbard Gacier calving chunks of ice into Russell Fjord, Wrangell

Hey Folks,

A test blog post. A photo of the Hubbard Glacier calving into Disenchantment Bay, near Gilbert Point.The Hubbard Glacier is one of the largest tidewater glaciers in North America, is extremely active, and a well-visited tourist destination. There are few experiences quite like watching a 200-300′ tower of ice crash into the sea!

I shot this photo on a trip I made to the Wrangell-St. Elias coast in 2007, first to Icy Bay, and then up into Disenchantment Bay, Gilbert Point and Russell Fjord.
