One of our side trips while staying in Seward, Alaska.
Exit Glacier is a glacier derived from the Harding Icefield in the Kenai Mountains of Alaska[ and one of Kenai Fjords National Park's major attractions. It is one of the most accessible valley glaciers in Alaska and is a visible indicator of glacial recession due to climate change. Exit Glacier retreated approximately 187 feet (57 m) from 2013 to 2014 and park scientists continue to monitor and record the glacier's accelerating recession.
It received its name for serving as the exit for the first recorded crossing of the Harding Icefield in 1968.
It is also the start of the Resurrection River.
