There’s a reason it is called Glacier View

While in Alaska in September, we drove to the small town of Glacier View, about two hours northeast of Anchorage along the scenic Glenn Highway. Glacier View, with its population of approximately 200, lies between the Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges. It is home to the Matanuska Glacier, America’s largest roadside glacier, which is 27 miles long and 4 miles wide. On our first visit to Alaska, in 2019, we did a guided hike on the Matanuska Glacier. This time, we photographed it with fall foliage in the foreground and also flew over it in a helicopter. The blue pools of water amidst the ice fields provided a nice pop of color. Another glacier, the Tazlina, can also be seen along the Glenn Highway, and is shown here with many evergreen trees in the foreground. The orange-colored layered mountains shown in these images are the Talkeetnas; the others are the Chugach. Any of these images can be converted into art for your home or office.
