Photo Album — Glacier Bay National Park

               Glacier Bay National Park preserves the wilderness on either side of a major coastal waterway on Alaska Sound.  Many glaciers flow into the bay, providing both a living laboratory of glacial geology and dramatic, exciting scenery for the visitor.  Most people see Glacier Bay from the deck of a cruise ship or ferry.  Some offer excursions to the glaciers for the adventuresome. 

            Prominent glaciers within the national park include Reid Glacier,
