The Hubbard Glacier in Alaska is a sublime monument to the natural world. This 122 Km glacier terminates in a cathedral-like mountain of ice and debris at Disenchantment Bay, where viewers can witness spectacular calvings. As the frozen mass migrations to the ocean, the complex shifting of ice culminates in an ephemeral dance of color and architecture. Once the glacier reaches the bay, the calving releases massive quantities of ice into the ocean, cooling it and bringing much-needed nutrients. All marine life, including plankton, fishes, and mammals, benefit from this influx of nutrients. However, climate change is melting the glaciers and polar ice caps at an unprecedented geological rate, negatively impacting future generations.
