Herbert Glacier, Alaska

Mike VanDeWalker shared these shots made last week on Herbert Glacier, 27.5 miles north of Juneau, Alaska. The blue ice in the photo below is caused by the extreme compression of the ice. Mr. VanDeWalker writes, "Standing on a glacier will show you just how little you mean in the grand scheme of things. Your cell phone wonít work up here and you canít get here with your SUV. You can bring all the money you want but it wonít do you any good. It is a real eye opener." The dark streaks on the glacier is not dirt; it's actually leaves and other material blown onto the ice, later freezing into the glacier.
