Mendenhall Glacier

Mendenhall Glacier is about 12 miles long, located in Mendenhall Valley, about 12 miles from downtown Juneau, the capital of Alaska. Originally known as Sitaantaagu, "The Glacier Behind the Town", or Aak'wtaaksit, "The Glacier Behind the Little Lake", by the Tlingits. The Glacier was named Auke Glacier by naturalist John Muir for the Tlingit Auk Kwaan (or Aak'w Kwaan) band in 1888. In 1899, it was renamed in honor of Thomas Corwin Mendenhall, who served on the Alaska Boundary Commission that surveyed Canada and Alaska. The Mendenhall Glacier extends from the Juneau Icefield, its source, to Mendenhall Lake and ultimately the Mendenhall River. Between 1951-1958, the terminus of the glacier which flows into suburban Juneau, retreated 1,900 feet. The glacier has also receded an additional 1.75 miles since 1958, when Mendenhall Lake was created. Since 1500, it has receded over 2.5 miles.
