Matanuska Glacier, Alaska, USA

Matanuska Glacier is an incredible valley glacier in the US state of Alaska. At 27 miles long by 4 miles wide, it is the largest glacier accessible by car in the United States. Its terminus feeds the Matanuska River.

It lies near the Glenn Highway about 100 miles north-east of Anchorage. Matanuska Glacier flows about 1 foot per day. Due to ablation of the lower glacier, as of 2007, the location of the glacier terminus changed little over the previous three decades. The glacier is the eponym of the Alaska Marine Highway ferry M/V Matanuska.
