Disenchantment 2
Photo By Tom Mckelvey

  • Title: Disenchantment 2
  • State/Province/Region: Alaska
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
  • Description: Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Hubbard Glacier with the 10,000 foot Mt Seattle in the background. Shot from the balcony of a cruise ship in Disenchantment Bay, August of 2012. Established in 1980 this lesser known park is by far the largest in the system. It is 6 times larger than Yosemite and 9 states are smaller than this park! The park is home to 9 of the 16 tallest peaks in North America, including 4 over 16,000', topped off by Mount St. Elias which ranks second at 18,008'. The park is home to 150 Glaicers, 95% of which are receding. Hubbard Glaicer has been advancing for over 100 years, it's current rate of advance is 80'/year. The face of Hubbard glaicer averages 300 feet above the waterline. What a great way to spend the day!
  • Gear: Nikon D800 w/ 24-70mm.
