The longest glacier in North America is the Hubbard glacier that is found in the Yukon territory of Canada. It stretches 76 miles to the sea at Disenchantment Bay. It is a tidewater glacier with an open calving face, which is over 6 miles wide. It is unique in the sense that it has been thickening and widening towards Alaska in the last century while other glaciers have been thinning and receding. If the Hubbard continues to grow it will create the largest glacier dammed lake in North America and will close the seaward entrance of the Russell Fjord.
