Part One includes Glacier Bay NP, Katmai NP, Kenai Fjords NP, and Lake Clark NP.

Glacier Bay National Park

This is primarily a visual journey, and I will not bore you with run on paragraphs of text about these beautiful places. As they say, a picture is better than a thousand words.

However, if you would like to read some information about Glacier Bay National Park, I have found some excellent links which I will list at the beginning of each section.

Also, each image is used legally, and the link provided with the image will take you to the page where I found it where you can find what license it was released under.

Most images are pretty high resolution so you can go to the original page to see it blown up full size if you would like to download it or just view it better.

Google Earth

I also recommend Google Earth as a great interface for exploring these places further. You can enable pictures which show up as little boxes on the location they were taken at, allowing you to both explore the terrain and satellite imagery as well as actual photos. That is, if you cannot actually travel there in person!
