For an Alaskan, glaciers are not a new sight. But even so, they are always impressive, forceful features that make and mark the geological landscape. The Gray glacier is one of the easily accessible glaciers in the park, and I took a short boat ride past it’s face after a 10 mile hike up along its northern moraine. During my visit, I encountered a surprising little amount of rain, and certainly less than I planned on seeing. On this overcast and rainy day, the blue face of the glacier is brilliant and the gray skies contribute a foreboding feel to the landscape.
