Glacier Bay National Park - Margerie Glacier

Margerie Glacier is in Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park.

It is a 21-mile long tidewater glacier. It is about 250 feet high at water level (an additional 100 feet is below water) and is about a mile wide. It is located on the Tarr Inlet (fjord).

This photo of me was taken on our rear facing balcony on the Carnival Legend as we sail away from the glacier.

The photo was taken from the Carnival Legend. The ship stopped and set for over an hour in front of the glacier. During that time we watched as the glacier calved and emitted 'white thunder' - booms, cracks, pops. It was a once in a lifetime experience!!

Here we are enjoying our time at the glacier.

In May 2016, we spent a day in Glacier Bay National Park. We were so lucky because it was a bright sunny day. The scenery was fantastic.

This is a view of Composite Island.

I took the picture from our rear-facing balcony on the Carnival Legend as we were leaving the park.
