Mendenhall Glacier is a retreating glacier. A neo-glaciation period began about 3000 years ago and ended in the mid 1700s. At this time, Mendenhall Glacier reached its maximum advance which was almost 2.5 miles down the valley from its present position. At its current rate of retreat it would take several centuries for the glacier to disappear. A change in the current warming trend would be required for the clacier to once again advance.

A small pond close to Mendenhall Lake. The lake itself is a muddy gray color.

Wonderful shots! I like the 2nd most. It was at ~6x zoom. Very sharp focus. Where were you standing to take this? On the hill to the right of the glacier or on the glacier itself? Thanks for sharing.

I am so envious of the fact that so many people on this forum get to go to so many spectacular locations. And here I am stuck in Pittsburgh.:P

#1 and 2 are breathtaking shots! Wow.

Being in Pittsburgh is not a bad thing. You now have "The Kid", Sidney Crosby playing with Mario and the rest of the Penguins. He'll provide you with lots of action shots if your a hockey fan.

from a typical hockey crazy Canuck. LOL :lol:
