Alaskan Cruise-Glacier Photos

Below are pictures from Glacier Bay. This glacier is advancing towards the ocean where pieces regularly break off into the ocean. This is called "calving". The bottom two pics of this group show calving. There's a loud noise like a gunshot that occurs. The pieces are often very large.
