This is one of Alaska's best kept secrets. Cordova is off the beaten tourist path ... it takes effort to visit this side of Prince William Sound ... so even though many people do travel here ... there are not the huge crowds found in other communities.
The glacier calves directly into the Copper River. It is relaxing to watch the forces of nature ... better than any DVD!
We refer to the calving as "fireworks, Alaska style". The glacier makes very loud cracking and popping noises ... when the ice hits the water, the sprays/splashes are huge ... they create large waves that are fun to watch! Yep ... nature was putting on quite a show for us!
A perfect dillydally day with my son.
