Geneva, IL (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
How climate change affects glaciers continues to spark public interest. Trips that offer the ability to witness these wonders first-hand were up last summer by 2% according to the Visitor Volume Report prepared by the McDowell Group. After successfully completing an inaugural trip hiking to the face of Worthington Glacier in Valdez, Alaska, More To Your Life Alaska Adventures owner Jim Robertson added this unique adventure to the 2013 itinerary. Amidst dramatic raw scenery, More To Your Life Alaska Adventures guides vacationers through a wide range of activities that start on the coast of Prince William Sound, move inland 100 miles to the Cooper River area and back with changing terrains and weather systems. It is a truly unique experience - part of a nine/eight-night adventure that the company organizes.
Jim Robertson, owner of More To Your Life Alaska Adventures commented “Seeing a glacier first-hand is an unbelievable experience. Most people have it on their bucket lists. The ever changing environment makes provides a sense of urgency for being able to witness these natural wonders.”
Like most of Alaska’s glaciers, this Valdez valley glacier has been steadily retreating for the last 150 years, but not as dramatically as many others, according to the Alaska Geographic Organization. Worthington Glacier is part of an on-going study funded by the National Science Foundation to study ice flow dynamics as they relate to climate change. By comparing movement at Worthington with numerical models for glacier flow, scientists hope to answer important questions about the future of climate change, the organization reports.
