Exit Glacier Panoramic Photo

While visiting Kenai Fjords National Park recently, I spent the morning taking an easy hike up to the terminal end (terminus?) of Exit Glacier. This is a popular spot, since it is a gentle hike and it is the main attraction of the only road that enters the national park. I think that I was the first person on the trail that morning, since there were no cars in the parking lot and I saw nobody else until I was nearly done with my walk. The weather was great: full sun, warm and quiet. I was hoping to see a bear or moose or something, but the only wildlife I saw was a fat old marmot who hung out until I got my camera at which point he ditched me. This is a panoramic photograph, composed of 10 separate images stitched (on the computer) into a single, enormous image. Note that this is actually a double-self-portrait, as I appear there twice in a manner of sorts. How’d he do dat?
