Another UNESCO site to check off my list: Glacier Bay, Alaska. This time, with two cards that came just a few days apart.


First, this view of Glacier Bay comes from Postcrossing forum member Cognac in Florida. It shows Margerie Glacier, a 21 mile (34 km) long glacier in the bay. It was named after the French geographer Emmanuel de Margerie.


This second card comes from my friend and classmate, Josh, who is in Alaska working for the summer. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the card is covered in glitter. Wherever there is snow, there is glitter. Josh writes that he bets I didn’t know that the glaciers had been covered in glitter to “beautify” the park and attract more tourists.

Many thanks to Cognac and Josh for sending these great cards!
