Hand-carved piece in the Fairweather Dining Room. Bartlett Cove, Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. Here, just 200 years ago stood the snout of a 100-mile long glacier. Though icebergs no longer dot the waters of Bartlett Cove, the animals, plants, and landscape continue to change after being affected by the Neoglacial Ice Age. There are many ways to explore Bartlett Cove. You may wish to investigate the area on your own, with a small group, or as part of a Ranger Naturalist guided hike or talk. Whatever the method, the beauty of Bartlett Cove and the events that took place here are well worth discovering. Bartlett Cove is the only developed area in Glacier Bay National Park. Join Ranger Tim and explore the activities, trails, lodging, and other highlights found at this remote wilderness outpost.
