Worthington Glacier Visits

Located off Richardson highway 28 miles from or to Valdez, this is a really good stop. 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 really 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, it'll be interesting to see the difference.

  1. Amazing! It's sad that the glacier is getting smaller... Global Warming. Sigh. Thanks for sharing your photos!
