Tracy Arm Ice

June 24, 2006

Glacial Ice. Something on the order of 150 to 200 years since these glacier calves fell on high as snow. An amazing journey following gravity to finally come to rest in the ocean as a floating temporary home for Bald Eagles and Harbor Seal mothers and pups. South Sawyer Glacier has receeded almost half a nautical mile since I last saw it last year, the effects of global warming right in front of my eyes! Perhaps the day will come when there are no glaciers in Southeast Alaska for eagles and seals to land on. A sobering thought...
