Although in winter the Salmon Glacier is probably inaccessible to any visitor here, it is different when midsummer returns. Ted's new panoramic painting with fireweeds flowering in the foreground shows the incredible size of the fifth largest glacier in the world. As with most of his paintings, he included a small addition of our local wildlife, this time there is a pair of marmots sitting on a rock near the bottom righthand corner.
To get there, visitors in Stewart, British Columbia in Canada will need to cross the Canadian border, then drive through our fascinating neighbour, the Alaskan town of Hyder which is 2 miles away which is worth an exploration of its own.
Leaving Hyder, one can stop and look for bears while protected by the boardwalk at Fish Creek before heading towards the glacier which is now easily accessible. There is a lookout point where you can park your car and look straight down on this magnificent sight with a Canadian flag flying up above. This is because you are back in British Columbia, but need to return to British Columbia through Hyder in Alaska once again! This is very confusing but has something to do with how imaginary lines were drawn on maps by people who never set foot on this land!?!
