OK, so I love glaciers. I had to study glaciology for one of my minors as an archaeology undergraduate (glacial till and valley formation are key to both clay deposits – ceramics was my specialty – and site formation.) I love a good U-shaped valley.
Since I figured Alaska might be my only chance (we tried to get on a glacier when in New Zealand and failed) we flew to see glaciers and also walked on one. Hooray!

It’s hard to get across the different sounds the ice makes as you walk on it, crunches and melodic tinkling. And so manny different ice types.
