Worthington Glacier Visits

Located off Richardson highway 28 miles to Valdez, Alaska. Worthington Glacier is conveniently located off Richardson highway. This is a really good stop to stretch, explore, and take lots of photos. 

An easy access from the road and a short hike to get in touch with the glacier. If you haven't seen a glacier before, I would highly recommend this place and a drive to Valdez from here is absolutely beautiful.

It is sad though seeing how much the glacier had retreated over time.  I wish I could find the pictures we took in 2001 and 2002 to add it here. A big difference since then, global warming is real!

There are so many hikers who hiked up to the hill on the left side just to see and explore the glacier from the top.
