One hundred and twenty-six miles south of Anchorage sits Kenai Fjords National Park—over 600,000 acres of wilderness, half of which is covered by ice. Despite these conditions, one can often find a variety of wildlife thriving in the park. Its crowning feature is the Harding Icefield, which has spawned at least 38 glaciers.
