Glaciers at Wolstenholme Fjord
 
Glaciers at Wolstenholme Fjord

Wolstenholme Fjord, 700 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in remote northwest Greenland, is the only place in the world where four glaciers meet! You're looking down on it from 36,400 feet in the air.

Two of the four glaciers are visible. Harald Moltke Glacier extends horizontally near the bottom, and Knud Rasmussen Glacier can be seen above and to the right of the center of the photograph. Salisbury Glacier and Chamberlin Glacier are obscured by clouds.

Nearby, but not visible in the photo, is Thule Air Base, the northernmost base of the U.S. Air Force.
