Glacial sights in George Parks Hwy
- Sort by:
Past Eielson, Park Rd drops to the valley below, passing a sign for Muldrow Glacier. At this point, the glacier lies about a mile to the south, and the terminus of the 32-mile ice floe is clearly visible, though you might not recognize it because the ice is covered with a mat of plant life. If the weather is cloudy and Mt McKinley and the surrounding peaks are hidden, the final 20 miles of the bus trip will be a ride through rolling tundra and past numerous small lakes known as kettle ponds.
Study the pools of water carefully to spot beavers or waterfowl.
