Picture Story

Salmon Glacier is in British Columbia, Canada and is maybe 2 miles from the southeast boundary of Alaska. You can drive to it via a mining road outside of Hyder, Alaska - and you can get to Hyder by taking a 66km detour off Hwy 37, which is the westernmost highway in British Columbia that takes you into Yukon Territory to join the Alaskan Highway. All that to say it’s definitely off the beaten path! However, anyone that makes the effort to get there will be rewarded with a roadside view that places you high above the glacier - where its ice flow makes a 90 degree turn south and melts into Portland Canal, which is the long thin fiord that divides Alaska and Canada. The composition at this location screams ultra-wide, but its also worthwhile shooting telephoto towards its summit with its curving ice flows going down the steep valley.
