Stephens Glacier

Stephens Glacier is one of many Alaskan glaciers that is rapidly shrinking. In the photo you can see the retreating terminus of Stephens Glacier with several of its retreating unnamed valley glacier tributaries. The easternmost former tributary lost contact with Stephens Glacier during the later part of the twentieth century. Note the fresh moraine deposits on the valley floor.
