As to when it will all melt~ here's some info:
The Matanuska Glacier has receeded 60 miles, from here in Palmer, to present terminus, in the past 18,000 years.
It's now 27 miles long, 4 miles wide @ terminus; average width is 2 miles wide. It's been stable for the past 400 years.

Oh! When I lived in Anchorage I had a Chesapeake Bay retriever named Kiska. Nice long shot of the Mat.

More beautiful scenery from God's country. We went there for the state fair and the giant veggie competition we had seen on TV. Great place. We saw the reindeer ranch and the musk ox farm...
