Eternal Ice

Hubbard Glacier is a glacier located in Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve in eastern Alaska and Kluane National Park and Reserve in Yukon, Canada. The longest source for Hubbard Glacier originates 122 kilometres from its snout and is located approximately 8 kilometres west of Mount Walsh . A shorter tributary glacier begins at the eastern ridge.
Before it reaches the sea, Hubbard is joined by the Valerie Glacier to the west, which, through forward surges of its own ice, has contributed to the advance of the ice flow.The Hubbard Glacier ice margin has continued to advance for about a century. While most glaciers have been receding over the years, this one is still growing :-)))
