Quick Clip – Harvard Glacier

Both Baltimore and Radcliffe Glaciers are tributaries that ultimately flow into Harvard Glacier which has a 1.5-mile wide face where it calves into the College Fjord.  It is 300 feet thick and covers 120,000 acres of Chugach National Forest.  The 30-second musical introduction comes from Annie Lennox’s version of Procum Harum’s “Whiter Shade of Pale“.

Notice the calved-out “heart of the glacier” just to the right of that stick-figure-looking medial moraine!
