Grand Pacific Glacier

The Grand Pacific glacier lies at the end of Tarr Inlet, straddling the border between BC and Alaska. Since the Harriman expedition in 1899, when the Margerie Glacier was still its tributary, the Grand Pacific has retreated by ten miles.

Most of the ice is located in British Columbia's Tatshenshini-Alseck Provincial Park, but the toe lies in Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska.
