Tourists on the daily tour boat, Baranof Wind, photograph the face of Margerie Glacier, one of the seven tidewater glaciers in Glacier Bay National Park and Reserve in southeast Alaska. The Margerie Glacier is located on the Tarr Inlet next to another tidewater glacier, Grand Pacific Glacier. Margerie Glacier's one mile wide face has a total height of 350 feet, out of which 250 feet is above the water level and 100 feet is beneath the water surface. For comparison purposes the Statue of Liberty is 307 feet tall. The length of the glacier (2011) is approximately 21 miles.
