Le Conte is the southernmost tidal glacier in the United States. Though not often mentioned as a major attraction in the literature, it is also one of the most accessible. The setting is beautiful with a magnificent waterfall nearby, a variety of seabirds, and nonstop views of seals lounging on floating ice blocks. In the background are impressive views of glaciated peaks, hanging glaciers, and snowfields.
