June 13, 2002, southwest-view from above the advancing terminus of Hubbard Glacier looking toward the push moraine that is blocking the mouth of Russell Fiord. A push moraine is sediment bulldozed from the floor of Russell Fiord by the advancing ice. Yakutat Bay is in the distance. The advancing terminus of the glacier is moving down Yakutat Bay and also into Russell Fiord. This photograph was made at high tide. USGS Photograph by Bruce F. Molnia (6/13/02-46)
