Worthington Glacier

During the Pleistocene Age, Alaska was buried under a thousands of foot thick mantle of ice. Around 100,000 glaciers, covering 30,000 sq miles (5% of the State), remain.We were hiking the challenging trails up the glacier's lateral moraines right up to its face, the remnants of the Ice Age.

The Worthington Glacier flows down from the top of the 6,500 ft. high Girls Mountains. The glacier tongues end near the Richardson Highway, and that gives us an easy acces for a spectacular hike on the glacier.
