Lituya Bay From a Distance

  This photo provides a nice east-facing view of the entire bay and its surroundings. Cenotaph Island (center of the bay), and La Chaussee Spit (thin strip of land at bay's mouth) are visible. The mountains at the head of the bay are part of the Fairweather Range. The non-forested areas of land lining the shore of the bay mark the approximate extent of the tsunami's runup.
