#3503 Muir Glacier and Muir Inlet, 1980


This ship-deck-based August 1980 photograph of Muir Glacier and Muir Inlet, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, St. Elias Mountains, Alaska, shows the nearly 200-ft-high retreating tidewater end of Muir Glacier with part of its face capped by a few angular pinnacles of ice, called séracs. Note the icebergs in the ship’s wake in the lower-right side of the photograph. The location of Muir’s terminus is less than a mile from the landward end of Muir Inlet.
