MEADE GLACIER | Rocks on parade
It’s hard to tell from a picture the enormity of this, but I’m standing on ice here looking “up river” within the band of rocks in the midst of the glacier
ICY CONTEMPLATION | Addison rocks
Son Addison, 13, studies the ice from his perch on a small rock
‘DONT’T FALL IN’ | This is what to avoid
Our guide, Mario, with a crevice in between. “If you fall in,” he said, “you’re on your own. There’s no way to get to you.” He measured the depth by dropping a rock into the space, estimating it at about 170 feet deep.
A SATISFYING DRINK | Zach quenches his thirst
Son Zachary, 15, drinks from a small stream in the glacier. The age is the ice is about 400 years, and the water was delicious.
