  STS068-229-007 Brady Glacier and Glacier Bay, Alaska, U.S.A. October 1994
Several valley glaciers are apparent throughout Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, named for Glacier Bay, the water inlet that parallels the eastern coast of the peninsula. This national park has approximately 16 tidewater glaciers and is accessible by plane or boat from Juneau, 50 miles (81 kilometers) away. Brady Glacier, the most prominent glacier, extends in a generally north-south orientation to the southern end of the peninsula. Visible are numerous sediment plumes carrying fine-grained silt to the Gulf of Alaska to the west; Cross Sound, shown at the bottom of the photograph, that connects the Gulf of Alaska with Glacier Bay; and the snow-covered Fairweather Range along the coast that includes Mount Fairweather [elevation 15 300 feet (4663 meters) above sea level].
