Where Davidson Glacier meets Lynn Canal. Today, the glacier is around 2 miles from tidewater, with kettles, moraines, forest, and fields of strawberries between the glacier and canal. When John Muir was here in the late 1800s, the glacier was nearly at tidewater. When Vancouver sailed by in the late 1700s, the glacier was still calving icebergs into Lynn Canal, which then followed the currents and the winds and produced navigational hazards for miles .
