Johns Hopkins Inlet Stunning Scene

January 17, 2024

A stunning scene of Johns Hopkins Inlet from 2000 feet above the shoreline with the Johns Hopkins Glacier flowing into the inlet from its downward path between towering snow covered Fairweather Mountain peaks in the farthest northwest of the Glacier Bay fjord in the horizon under a crystal clear blue sky.

A stunning scene of Johns Hopkins Inlet from 2000 feet above the shoreline with the Johns Hopkins Glacier flowing into the inlet from its downward path between towering snow covered Fairweather Mountain peaks in the farthest northwest of the Glacier Bay fjord in the horizon under a crystal clear blue sky.

The glacier fills the end of the fjord, stretching about 1-mile wide, and reaching 250 feet high above the waterline. The ice front extends under sea level, to a depth of approximately 200 feet, where an underwater moraine protects the deepest extent of the glacial ice like armor against the warm ocean water.

Formed from numerous tributary glaciers, the length of Johns Hopkins glacier is about 12 miles from the source in the Fairweather Mountain peaks. The tributary glaciers contribute rocks scraped off the mountainsides along the main glacier.  Melt-water from the glacier is discharged from submarine tunnels located near both the eastern and western edges of the glacier, carrying ground up rock referred to as glacial flour, creating a design of muddy brown fresh water mixing with the clearer salt water.

Covering 3.3 million acres of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, temperate rainforest, wild coastlines and deep sheltered fjords, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is a highlight of Alaska's Inside Passage and part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site ... one of the world’s largest international protected areas. If ever we needed a place to intrigue and inspire us, this is it. Glacier Bay is a homeland, a living laboratory, a national park, a designated wilderness, a biosphere reserve, and a world heritage site. From sea to summit, Glacier Bay offers limitless opportunities for adventure and inspiration.
