A sailboat coming out through the very narrow opening into Fords Terror as we are coming in.  This place is amazing – huge granite walls, waterfalls and because it is very challenging to access, the place to ourselves last month!

I had a great time Friday with my friends at Exit Glacier Guides doing one of their climbing trips.  It was so much fun, and amazing to drop into a beautiful glacier like this!  They were nice enough to set me up with an anchor at the bottom of the crevasse so that I could safely hang out and photograph, what a treat!
