Glaciers move like really slow rivers of ice. This valley glacier, the Matanuska, spills between mountain peaks with gravity's guidance. .
.
.

To be considered a glacier there must be at least .1 square kilometers, or almost 25 acres of ice. .
.
.

Each one of the thousands of glaciers in Alaska spills into its own natural art piece. .
.
.

Above 5,000 feet and through the granduer of Alaskan mountain ranges, alpine lakes collect the melting snow from towering rock. .
.
.

The brisk temperatures keep these waters crystal clear and shimmering, decreasing the growth rate of algae and moss. .
.
.

Glacial silt often finds its way into these waters, intensifying the blueish hue by distorting light. .
.

A charter captain steers into Blackstone Bay of the Prince William Sound. .
.
.

These water crafts and their trusty captains can be rented out for multiple days or even afternoons to get a more private experience of the coastlines. .
.
.

These vessels make a great shuttle to reach rarely explored land or plop you and your paddle further into adventure. .
.
.

Getting a pick up after many days of paddling isnt too shabby either.

Here you can see a black bear taking their own trekk along the Matanuska Glacier. .
.
.

After months of hibernation in forest dens, the black and brown bears awaken to the bright greens of spring. .
.
.

Black bears are coming out of hibernation and transition to walking hibernation in some areas of Alaska. .
.
.

This is a 2 to 3 week process of a bear voluntarily eating and drinking less. Due to their metabolism slowing down for the winter, they need to take time to adjust their appetite for the full activity they will soon take on for the summer months.

This is the portside town of Whittier. A neighbor to the sea and friend to fishermen. .
.
.

A majority of its days are draped in rainclouds and the smell of saltwater brine hits you sooner than you can exit the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel. .
.
.

This small seaside cranny is a central hub for many wildlife migrations and soon the shores will come to life with its annual residents.

Alaska continues its solidarity with our experiences with change as the melting season approaches. .
.
.

Like gold in a river stream, shining glimmers of grandeur peak beneath the escaping layers of snow. .
.
.

We embrace the unknown and welcome new experiences as the come.

The sun broke over the corniced ridge lines of neighboring peaks just as we rounded the peninsula that morning. .
.
.

The afternoon proved to be a showcase of facets we had not yet seen. This changed with each new angle from the bright skies. The stage turning with each minute. .
.
.

The daylight, stretched to it's limits, proved to perfectly spark our imaginations and curiosities about what else we had yet to know.

See those small holes? .
.
.

These spherical impressions are created from windblown sediment, rock particles, and microbes that melt down into the ice on glaciers and ice caps. .
.
.

With this combination of materials and a little elemental help, these divets become a micro ecosystem in itself and are known as cryoconites.

One moment the skies are bright and clear. Water seeps through jagged rock and reflects in the bright light. Waterfalls deluging into the ocean below. .
.
.

Gulls dive between the cascading water and cliff sides. Greenery demands your attention as you try to take in every little detail. Each intricacy reveals a loud and vibrant story. .
.
.

The next moment brings heavy grey clouds, brisk wind, and sleeting rain. The chipper noises of wildlife seem to rest next to the drops of icy rain on the waters surface. .
.
.

Everything is different, but yet it is still the same. Like a new lense has been put on our world. And we adjust and notice things that werent as noticeable before. .
.
.

Suddenly it is easier to take in the quieter parts of the landscape. And we begin to melt with change.

The interior of Alaska is a gem in the crown of this great state. .
.
.

Braided rivers wind through glacially carved valleys, leading you further into splendor. .
.
.

The layers that come together here showcase how all the elements are connected. The longer you observe, the more you will find.
