An August 2001 trip
to Alaska by Dan Kenneth Phillips
Quote: Hubbard Glacier is one of the most famous glaciers in Alaska. Many cruise ships go to this glacier to show their vacationers what a real glacier is like.
He is best known for documenting the land and native peoples of Alaska from 1927 through 1962 and bringing Alaska to the forefront of America's attention. The Smithsonian Institution continues to preserves Hubbard's 200,000 feet of raw film footage, 50 film shorts, and feature films. Hubbard also wrote three books about his adventures.
The weather was clear and the sun came out for a few minutes, a rareity say others who have been here previously. This was really a stimulating event. Ice floes were beside the ship, the temperature dropping to around 30 degrees, and my hat tightly tied to my head to keep it from flying across the sea and drowning. A beautiful experience.
