Beautiful Glacier Photos

Glaciers are some of the most powerful forces in all of nature. These massive ice flows have the capability to literally move mountains, as their plodding treks through the landscape leaves behind some of the most beautiful natural settings in the entire world.

While glaciers used to cover much of the earth during the last ice age, they’re now harder to come by. One of the few places in America you can few these stunning ice flows is in Alaska. Take a look at these incredible Alaskan glacier photos.
