Glacier Bay-the name alone calls up an image of spectacular scenery, but imagination must surely fall short of reality. Glacier Bay National Monument extends west from the Chilkat Range to Cape Fairweather (a gross misnomer), and north from Cross Sound to the Canadian border. Within this area of 4319 square miles is a plexus of deep berg-choked fjords, glacier-filled valleys, and snow-clad peaks. Relief ranges from sea level to 15,300 feet.
