Color of Icebergs

The Color of Icebergs is an close-up view of one of the icebergs on Spencer Lake.  This stunning abstract art draws you in as you realize that you are viewing ice that's hundreds of years old.  When calving, the dense ice flips over to where the heaver side ends (usually what was on top) up underneath the water leaving the part of the calved iceberg that you see exposing hundreds of year old ice.

Glacier Bay Sunbathing Sea Lions

The glacier is about 12-13 miles long.  To look at Mendenhall Glacier is a bit overwhelming.   In the below fine art, you can see the glacier, a waterfall (that starts at the top of that mountain), and if you look near the bottom of the waterfall you see some small black specs ... those are people!   Whether you're looking for a peaceful hike, or a chance to casually take in some fresh air, views and nature, you won't leave Mendenhall disappointed.
