Bear Glacier - Strohn Lake

Looking at Bear Glacier & Strohn Lake in Bear Glacier Provincial Park along the Glacier Highway near Stewart, British Columbia.  The is the first significant glacier one can get close to along the very picturesque drive to Hyder, Alaska & beyond.  Bears are quite frequent here, especially during evening hours.  The glacier itself flows down from the massive Cambria Icefield & has seen a constant retreat over the years when compared to the lateral moraines visible along the hillsides, even older photos from less than a decade ago showed the ice terminus used to touch into the lake.  From this point northwards to practically Anchorage, Alaska, the entire set of Pacific Coastal Ranges is heavily glaciated including the Kluane Icecap, earth's third largest icecap stretching across the St. Elias Mountains in Alaska/Yukon Territory.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
