When we shared this post with you about our visit to the Margerie Glacier, we were giving you a far off glimpse of the entire terminus of the glacier. Here’s a wonderful photograph we captured up close and personal with the Margerie Glacier.
To give you some scale, you’re looking at a small section of the glacier here. This puppy is over a mile wide with roughly 25 stories of height extending above the water. You can appreciate the scale a little bit if you take a peek at the seagulls (looking very minute) flying around in the ice cave in the bottom right.
