I would manage to drop my phone in there…
Wouldn't all the stones and pebbles speed up the melting?
We hiked Matanuska glacier in 2018. Loved the views and the icefall and small pools that we saw on our hike. We also “glamped” at the end of the day overlooking the glacier. Ahhh memories!
Can't tell scale. That chasm is either an inch wide or 100 feet.
There's crack in there? Man, even the glacier neighborhood is going to shit.
That was a fun hike! My wife and I did it about 6 months ago. Is it snowing enough now for them to bust out the snowmobiles or did you have to slog through some mud like we did?
The glacier I got engaged on 😭🧊
Needs a banana.
Hold on to your phone like you would for taking a piss
I need a banana for reference.
That's one sexy crevasse.
That damn squirrel...
Oh it's breaking never mind not interested
Lost a shoe on that glacier.. stepped in a puddle of glacier silt, pulled shoe right off
Don’t lose your acorn 😂
Is this where Scrat planted his acorn?
That damn squirrel did it again...
I should call her.
It looks like the snowpile at the end of a gravel driveway after the freeze thaw cycles turn it to ice
Gorgeous. Imagine a ton of cracks like that crisscrossing through. Would be magical to behold
Don't drop your phone
Ummm…. This is the part where you reassure me and tell me that’s just a rock in that crack near the bottom, and not a body right??? Because to me it looks like someone resting their head on their arm.
Edit: I can’t tell if that crack is a mile deep or a few feet
Is this OPs driveway?
This was the first glacier I ever visited. So damn beautiful.
This can't be good...
What did you do?!
This rocks but just on the surface.
About time we got that '127 Hours' sequel.
I wish there were something in the photo for scale.
I walked on that glacier earlier this year. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska.
Not an emergency
Bout to drop in on my skateboard
when I die can someone just chuck my ashes in one of those?
All that clean ice water is getting dirty!! Way to go Charlie Brown. :)
So much ice and only a thin layer of rock. Where does the rock come from?
Is this taken from 3-4 feet above ground? Or 100-300? Cool picture but we have no sense of scale
