Aialik Glacier, Kenai peninsula, Alaska.

Aialik Glacier is at the North end of Aialik Bay off the Gulf of Alaska. It is an example of a tidewater glacier since it terminates at sea level and calves directly in to the sea. With it’s source being the vast Harding Icefield in Kenai Fjords national park, the face of the Aialik Glacier is 300 to 400 feet high from sea level to the face top.
