Artist's Description

Herbert Glacier by Dave Hampton – Juneau, Alaska

I lived on this glacier for two summers at a dog camp, guiding dog sledding tours. The camp was 100% helicopter dependent and was located about 11 miles up the glacier. Last season we had the second wettest summer on record. The first being two tears ago. The scientists studying the area told me its because the oceans are warming therefore all the precipitation is coming inland. Are camp is located under a 1000 foot ice fall that is fed from the Juneau ice field . The Juneau ice field is massive. It is about 100 miles long and 50 miles wide feeding around 35 major glaciers in the area. this photo was taken on one of the few sunny days we had. In june alone we received 12 inches of rain. I saw this glacier for the first time 10 years ago and it is amazing how fast it is receding back into the mountains.
