Glacier Garden

Alaska

One of the things that amazes me most about these remote mountains the boundary range in Alaska is how you can be on a pinprick of land surrounded by an ocean of glacial ice on all sides, a region where more than 90% of the landscape is frozen year round, and if you look closely enough, having time camp and walk the south facing ridgelines, you can find these exquisite gardens complete with gorgeous blooms, lush greens and even the occasional hummingbird flying by, thousands of feet above the great rivers of ice. It's a contrast that always leaves an impression on me and only occurs for a few weeks every year. Photo © copyright by Marc Adamus.
