Mouth of the Matanuska Glacier - Alaska

This part of the glacier is hidden behind ice-walls, but crossing that wall totally worth it. Matanuska is a 4 miles wide glacier, flowing just about a foot per day.


Last summer, we had an awesome week in Alaska. Backpacking around Denali Park and ice-climbing these glaciers was an epic experience. Our secret plan of 'fire-and-ice' could not happen though.


That shirtless guy is actually my friend Emil before jumping into the icy-water !!

and of course the last part of the previous sentence is a lie.
