Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Colleen Robinson Klug

After having walked the foreground and crested the hill, a first glance at this ancient, 27-mile glacier leaves him in awe. Suddenly, he is smaller than ice and compelled to walk among the frozen contours that move and shape this land despite their marshmallow-soft angles.

Location: Alaska, Matanuska Glacier, USA
