The Bear Glacier

For months, maybe years, I’ve meant to thank Grant for the continuing series of great photos. Today there’s a new one, of “The Bear Glaciers.”

I’ve been to the Bear Glacier (singular, as far as I know) many times in the last 30+ years. I’ve watched the toe of the glacier downwaste and recede from where it formerly touched the meltwater lake across which it’s viewed from the parking lot.

The photo shows no lake and no outflow stream—just a parking lot, the glacier, and a tiny trickle of meltwater. Is this an angle I never found in my own photos? Or is it photoshopped for effect? I’m open to other explanations, too, whether divinely-inspired or otherwise.

The effect may have been created by taking the photo from near ground level and zooming in. That would put the "lake" out of view.

Here's a picture from the summer of 2021. I have another print photo from the mid 80's where the glacier was about halfway to the road from where it is now.

I visited Hyder and Stewart in June 1995 on my Kawasaki 500. Below are two pics I took of Bear Glacier on June 10th, 1995.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
