Detailed Description

This ship-deck-based photograph of Muir Glacier and Muir Inlet, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, St. Elias Mountains, Alaska, is taken towards the north-northwest and shows the nearly 50-m-high retreating tidewater terminus of the glacier with part of its face capped by a few angular sĂ©racs. Note the icebergs, especially in the smoother, arcuate ship’s wake in the lower right side of the photograph. The location of Muir’s terminus is less than a kilometer from the landward end of Muir Inlet.
