Sheridan Glacier 1

(Seen only by those of us who went on the rafting trip
out of Cordova.  Can you imagine anything so foolish
as rafting class 3 rapids in water only one degree above
freezing?  Well, maybe rafting class 4 rapids.

Sheridan Glacier -- as well as Sherman Glacier and others
nearby -- were named by a couple of lieutenants surveying the
area shortly after the Civil War -- and U.S. purchase of
Alaska.  A little brown-nosing, you think?)
