Northwestern Glacier

Northwestern Glacier, or what's left of it at the end of the summer in 2018. This glacier, named after Northwestern University in 1909, can be found at the head of Northwestern Fjord in Kenai Fjords National Park, just under 30 miles southwest of Seward. The tidewater glacier has been steadily receding over the past century. By the second half of the 20th century, Northwestern Glacier's recession revealed a number of islands in the Fjord that had previously been covered in ice.
