Images of Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, Alaska, Photo Album
There are two glaciers at the head of Tracy Arm (see this map), the Sawyer Glacier, seen in this photo, and the South Sawyer Glacier. Most of the large cruise ships only get a glimpse, if any view at all, of either of the glaciers, whose rapid retreating dumps a lot of ice into the narrow channel. The Sawyer Glacier is retreating up the bay at about 85 feet per year, while the South Sawyer is losing over 300 feet of ice per year.
