Mendenhall Glacier - Juneau, Alaska
My first time photographing a glacier! Seeing Mendenhall Glacier was an awesome experience. Even though the glacier has receded a lot in recent years, it is still incredible to see especially if you've never seen one up close before. The colors, patterns and textures in the ice are beautiful. It certainly whets my appetite to see more glaciers! This was the first of several glaciers that we saw on our trip, although this is the only one we were able to get relatively close to. The rest were seen either from the Alaska State Ferry or from across Chilkat Inlet on our hike in Chilkat State Park, Haines.
