Portrait of
Lamplugh Glacier
(pronounced "lamp-hue")

Lamplugh Glacier is in Glacier  
Bay National Park, in Johns
Hopkins Inlet, and it's almost
150 feet high at the face! On the
day that I was there, the sun was
shining and making "diamonds" on
the water even though the wind
was icy cold. We came around a
curve and there it was with its
blue ice even bluer than the blue
of the sky!
In July of 2016 there was a
landslide on the glacier that
spilled black debris over it and
into the water.  Scientists said
that this was due, in part, to
the warming temperatures that are
causing the ice that holds back
the rocks and mountains to melt.
When they melt, they release
landslides and rock avalanches.
