Glacier photos from Spencer Lake, Alaska

Posted September 24th, 2009 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

On the last day of our photo adventure to Denali National Park, we took a train ride to Spencer Lake for a boat trip along the Spencer Glacier. Our guides paddled our intrepid crew of photographers about a mile up the lake, to the terminus of the Spencer Glacier. All along the way we were able to paddle next to ice bergs that had recently calved from the glacier. The deep blue color of the ice was stunning and the sheer immensity of the glacier was amazing.

After enjoying our Spencer Glacier excursion, we headed back to Anchorage on the Alaska Railroad . Along the way, we enjoyed more stunning views of the Alaska Range and of Mt. McKinley.
