Mendenhall Glacier

Mendenhall Glacier is an awe-inspiring mammoth glacier. For perspective: see the people near the bottom right? They are still a half an hour hike from the glacier cliff.
These are ice "teeth". This is a closeup of the glacier's bottom left water's edge. The dark blue "tooth" just "calved" the sliver of ice floating in the water. The oxygenation of the ice causes the darker color.

The waterfall on the right is a local favorite spot to sometimes catch a glimpse of "ROMEO" the big black wolf who is known to play with dogs running off leashes.
Again to get a perspective on the size and volume of this waterfall, see the tiny spots of people on the beach in front of it?Posted by Picasa
