Alaska’s Roadside Glaciers

Alaska's glaciers are some of the most unusual environments in the world and some are surprisingly accessible.

Browsing The Atlantic's Photo blog is one of my favorite daily rituals — the work is thoughtfully edited and beautifully presented. Hiking near, on, and ever sometimes under Alaska's glaciers is one of my favorite outdoor experiences — there is nothing else like it. So it's a special delight to see my work from Alaska's glaciers presented on The Atlantic's Photo blog:

Exploring Alaska's Roadside Glaciers

This is work from both assignments and personal trips taken over the last nine years starting with my first trip onto the Matanuska Glacier in 2009 for a New York Times travel piece, through a couple personal trips this past summer. These places have one of the most rewarding work-to-awe ratios of any outdoor experience you can have. A reasonably fit person can reach any of these locations on a day hike and be back in time for dinner.
