Long range shot of the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, AK. If you zoom in, you can see the kayak near the glacier for size reference.

It was pouring rain when we were there so it is nice to see what it looks like. I didn't realize you could see it from Juneau. Thanks for sharing.

Be an exciting ride in that itty bit boat when a big chunk of ice calves off that glacier! Sounds like fun (as long as you are prepared for it)...

@slowpez - Its a 15 minute bus ride from the docks at Juneau. There's also a huge waterfall if you walk 3/4 of a mile from the lookout station.

The canoe adds real scale to this shot. Incredibly impressive.
