Taken looking up-glacier with Steve Miller, of the Stanford Research Institute, preparing the equipment for taking a record. This picture shows the general character of the ice surface over which most of the measurements were made on lower glacier and where ice thicknesses in excess of 1000 feet were obtained. This work was sponsored by the American Geographical Society and Camp No. 12 of their Juneau Ice Research Project was on the highest portion of the low peak to the extreme right. Two icefalls show in the picture, one extending from left of center of the picture and continuing to the extreme right, and the other showing to the left of center of the picture in the background. - The top surface of the ice at this point is 950 feet above sea level and the ice extends to more than 150 feet below sea level.
