Majestic Glacier Bay
A bald eagle perches on ice in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in Alaska. The park, which covers nearly 5,200 square miles (13,500 square kilometers) of mountains, glaciers and coastlines, is located in the Alaskan panhandle, west of the capital city of Juneau.
More than 400,000 people visit Glacier Bay National Park each year. Since no roads lead into the park, it is typically accessed by plane or cruise ship. Visitors to the pristine park share the area with diverse wildlife, including grizzly and black bears, moose, wolves, mountain goats, sea otters, whales, eagles and deer.
