Glacierside

Henrietta Nesmith Glacier, Lake Hazen, Ellesmere Island. Canadian High Arctic

NOTES OF INTEREST:
1. This dramatic glacier was named by American explorer Adolphus Greely in the 1880’s during the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition. It was largely due to his Henrietta’s pleading of the US government that a rescue effort was pulled  together that saved Greely’s life after things went horribly wrong. In the end, only 6 of the 25 men survived.
2. Lake Hazen, 4km from the toe of the glacier, is the largest lake in the world north of the Arctic Circle.
