Nearly into Seward, we came to the Exit Glacier.
Exit Glacier is in the Kenai Fjords
National Park, on the Kenai
Peninsula in Southcentral Alaska. Exit Glacier is the only part of the
park that is accessible by road.
Kenai Fjords is a 650,000-acre park. It includes the 300-square-mile
Harding Icefield, source of the glaciers that carved the fjords and
provide some of the park's most impressive sights. It has several
tidewater glaciers that can be viewed from tour boats that depart from
Seward. Exit Glacier, which is an inland (i.e., hanging) glacier, can
be approached on trails – all the way to the point of touching the
Exit Glacier is 4 miles long. It is so named because it is the location
of the "exit" of the first recorded party to cross the Harding Ice Field
