"During a flightseeing tour over Glacier Bay NP we had a dramatic view at the 12-mile-long John Hopkins Glacier. The glaciers seen here today are remnants of a general ice advance- the Little Ice Age- that began about 4,000 years ago. In 1890, geologist Harry Fielding Reid discovered the glacier and proudly named it toe John Hopkins, a philanthropist and founder of the eponymous university and hospital. He also named the smaller glacier on the left to Daniel Coit Gilman, the first president of the university. For more backgroundstories and Alaska webgalleries: www.michelhammann-photography.com"
