Image Caption: STS068-227-002 Hubbard Glacier, Alaska, U.S.A. October 1994
Several alpine glaciers are apparent immediately southeast of Malaspina Glacier, the most prominent of which is Hubbard Glacier that flows into Yakutat Bay. Barely visible is Russell Fjord that extends southward at the junction of Hubbard Glacier and Yakutat Bay. The Tongass National Forest appears near the bottom of the photograph. The Saint Elias Mountains extend through this part of the Alaskan panhandle.
