Brief Directions: From the Juneau airport take the Glacier highway to the Mendenhall glacier visitor center. Make sure of the ice stability and walk the mile across the frozen ice to the glaicer face.
Notes: The frozen lake ice stability is always a concern and one not taken lightly. Approach the face with due caution. Better to use a telephoto than get to close to danger as the ice is always unpredictable. Wear good warm layerd clothes and ice cleats if the lake ice is bare.
Best Season: Winter
Description: Walking across the froaen Mendenhall lake to the Glacier Face just at sundown on a sub zero day caught the late light decending. A very cold Day at the glacier face
