Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau, Alaska

Located in Mendenhall Valley, about 12 miles from Juneau, Alaska, the Mendenhall Glacier is a huge sheet of ice about 12 miles long. It is an awe-inspiring sight.

The glacier has also receded 1.75 miles (2.82 km) since 1958, when Mendenhall Lake was created, and over 2.5 miles (4.0 km) since 1500. It will continue to recede for the foreseeable future.
