Glacier in Northwestern Alaska Melts into a Large Lake
Pictured first is the Northwestern Glacier and its beautiful rock-filled shoreline, coated in a fresh blanket of snow. The spiky, tall icebergs hide the ocean floor that flows underneath them. The second photo shows that any remnant of a glacier is pretty much gone, turned into a large lake.
This Alaskan Glacier has shrunken about 6 miles down, completely out of the field of view now. We keep hearing about climate change and glaciers melting, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and hearing about it is significantly different than seeing the massive change that took place over time.
