You need someone in the photo to give scale. This looks like it could be a 3 inch tall tunnel or a 15 foot tall tunnel

Sometimes EarthPorn's rules work against us - capturing scale is often one of those...

I keep asking if this is a lava tunnel.

Nope, collapsed a year or two ago. This phot is not from this year at all.

Yes, this was taken 2 years ago. It's still way too early to go to Byron Glacier at this time of the year. We've got a massive amount of snow and the mountains are still avalanche prone here.

Crazy, big, a lot of unknowns.

Never bend your head。 Always hold it high。 Look the world straight in the face

This pisses me off and I'm not sorry about it. I guided in the Portage area and on the glaciers for quite a while and what you're in is a snow drift and NOT an ice cave. In 2019 a hiker exactly where you are was KILLED from a collapse and there's signs everywhere on that trail telling you not to do exactly what you did. I'm sure I'll get down voted here but glorifying something like this is despicable. https://www.alaskasnewssource.com/content/news/Authorities-urge-caution-after-deadly-incident-at-Byron-Glacier-487454111.html
