Blue Ice in Alaska, USA

  • Blue Ice in Alaska, USA

Ice calved from the Portage Glacier in Portage Lake, Alaska.
In this location the glacier has retreated around a bend so that it is no longer visible from the area accessible by foot (attributed by many to global warming). Here is a link to an interesting fact sheet about the retreat: http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2006/3141/
