Matanuska Glacier, Alaska

The first photo is the head or beginning of the Matanuska Glacier. (Note – This photo was taken by placing a monocular over the camera lens.) In the background is the Chugach Mountain Range. By road you can drive approximately 18 miles from this vantage point to the end of the glacier, pictured in the second photo.

Alaska Range is actually the Tordillo Mountains; Mt. Spur, Mt. Torbert has six named glaciers flowing this direction and seven or eight glaciers on the back also flowing this direction, mostly east to the Yentna River near the mouth of the Susitna River. Good fishing at the mouths. The mnts. are about 75 miles away.
