Zenfolio | Mauricio Drelichman | Gulkana Glacier

The Gulkana is one of the many glaciers that descend from the Alaska range. Together with its twin, the Gakona glacier, they are the source of two large rivers that cross the southern Alaskan interior. We hiked up the glacier valley to its terminus, climbed a lateral moraine, and descended on the valley of the Gakona glacier. Since there is no developed trail here, finding the route was half the fun!
