Cruising Alaska: May/June 2006

Just before reaching the sea, the Turner and Haenke Glaciers join so they appear to be a single glacier. The Turner is on the left, Haenke on the right. The black stripes on the Turner are medial moraines caused by several glaciers meeting higher up in the mountains to form the Turner, while the Haenke has no medial moraines as it has no tributaries.
