Under the Worthington - We stopped by the Worthington Glacier State Rec Area on our way to Valdez. I've seen huge changes here in the last 5 years. Two giant arms near the margin of this glacier are completely gone. Some landslide debris that insulates the ice beneath it has slowed recession on the south side. The glacier has steepened. I've had no trouble running up it in sandals in the past, this time I needed boots and crampons.
