||This photo shows a view of the Gilbert
Inlet, located in the northeastern corner of Lituya Bay, which serves
as the terminus of the Lituya Glacier (also shown in the photo). The barren
patch of rock along the point, shown in the center of the photo, is the
result of the initial giant splash of water generated by the rockslide,
which occurred directly opposite the inlet. The extent of runup at this
location, marked by the vertical elevation of the barren rock face, was
an amazing 1,720 feet above sea level! The highest ever recorded.
