The Mendenhall Glacier has been called many names: Sitaantaago, Aak'wtaaksit, Auke and today, the Mendenhall Glacier. This glacier has been well known for its beauty and isolation for centuries. However, scientists warn us that this glacier is shrinking due to warming temperatures, so adventurers may want to visit this jewel before it is too late. The brave and the bold can access the glacier from Juneau Alaska using husky-drawn dog sled, boat and even helicopter which can accommodate those who want a two-hour hike or a short walk. The glaciers are also famous for their dangerous ice caves, which are ever-changing and reserved for the risk takers.
