Wrangell-St. Elias – Yahtse Glacier calving in to the cold waters of Icy Bay, with icebergs floating around the toe of the glacier. Mt. St. Elias, 18 008′ tall, rises in the background.

One of the best flights I”ve ever taken in my life. We were supposed to have flown into Icy Bay for a trip via Yakutat, but some mechanical issues with the plane there cancelled that option. A last minute change of plans had us fly from McCarthy to Icy Bay. And, a week later, back again.

Bluebird days, glaciers, snow and ice and mountains and oceans and an endless array of jaw-dropping scenes every which way I turned the camera.

Feeling giddy at times.
