Northwestern Fjord, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska

Kayakers in Northwestern Fjord, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.

As you head into Kenai Fjords from Seward, Aialik Bay is the first fjord you come to.  But they next bay over, Northwestern Fjord, is even more spectacular in many ways.  Northwestern has more glaciers, and almost no vegetation, it is a very harsh, raw environment.

This is Northwestern Glacier from a few years ago.  A few years before this, there wasn’t any rock showing between the legs of the glacier, it was all solid ice.  Now that the rock wall is exposed, this south facing glacier is really melting fast.
