"White Thunder of Sitaantaagu" (2014)
by Felisa Tan
Location: Mendenhall Glacier (Originally “Sitaantaagu” - meaning: “The Glacier Behind the Town” in Tlingit), Juneau Icefield, Alaska
_______________________________________10,000 YEARS IN THE MAKING, Mendenhall Glacier, a scenic grandeur, along with the other glaciers of Alaska are ones of the last traces of American wilderness and the Ice Age. There was something compelling about the distant rumble, that roared just before it calved and blocks of icebergs crashed into the inland sea. The anticipation, the uncertainty - so mysterious, so majestic. A distinct symphony of creaks and growls - the white thunder, the Tlingits call it.

10,000 YEARS IN THE MAKING, Mendenhall Glacier, a scenic grandeur, along with the other glaciers of Alaska are ones of the last traces of American wilderness and the Ice Age. There was something compelling about the distant rumble, that roared just before it calved and blocks of icebergs crashed into the inland sea. The anticipation, the uncertainty - so mysterious, so majestic. A distinct symphony of creaks and growls - the white thunder, the Tlingits call it.
