Cruising Alaska: July 2007

The Margerie Glacier (often mis-spelled as Marjorie Glacier), in contrast, is the most impressive of the Glacier Bay glaciers. In the enlarged photo you can just make out a small boat at the face. Twenty-one miles long, it was named for French geographer and geologist Emmanuel de Margerie, who visited Glacier Bay in 1913.
