Located at the end of a fjord in Alaska called Tracy Arm, the twin Sawyer Glaciers – North Sawyer and South Sawyer – attract thousands of tourists every year. The wildlife in the area includes black and brown bears, deer, wolves, harbor seals, and a variety of birds, such as Arctic terns and pigeon guillemots.
The face of the South Sawyer Glacier stretches one-third of a mile (536 meters) and calves icebergs of all sizes.
