Mendenhall Glacier

Alaska’s most famous river of ice is attracting a lot of curiosity from visitors from around the world.  Fed from an icefield high above Juneau, Mendenhall Glacier is about 13 miles long, by no means the largest of Alaska’s numerous glaciers but perhaps the most visited given that it is only 13 miles from downtown Juneau and is accessible by bus and a mile-long walk.  One can also opt to bike.

As with 90 percent of Alaska’s glaciers, Mendenhall is shrinking at an increasingly rapid rate.  A sign that the world we live in is changing faster than we ever imagined.

Visit Little Red House and enjoy the many wonderful mosaics.

  2. Hello Jen,
    The photos of your blog are splendid. Now, about your post : here too (France) the river of ice in Mont-Blanc – (Alpes Mountains) is shrinking at an alarming rate. It is the consequences of the global warming…
    I like your blog.
