There are several things one hoped to see in Alaska and glaciers were one of them. Approach them, feel their grandeur, explore an ice cellar ...
It was towards the Kenai Peninsula that our wishes were granted.
By talking to a ranger, she shows us several glaciers and trails, we note and remember everything.
As always, you just need to walk a little harder to be able to approach these giants, the trails are no more, you are alone and exploring these mastodons is at your own risk.
Glaciers, we had already crossed several on our way but this was the first one we trod.
The creaks, the streaming water, the rolling stones, the falling ice… here nothing is frozen, the glacier lives. And this strange feeling that he is dying little by little.
During our passage in this land of ice, the temperatures were unusually warm in Alaska and we could literally feel the glacier melting.
Torn between wonder and consternation, nothing stands still. Being aware is one thing, but seeing is even more confusing.
Exploring an ice cellar is awesome! The fresh air, the noise and at the same time this calm, all these shades of blue… Another world!
