Glaciers are BIG
ov. 26 – At the bottom of the Glacier.
There is only one other place in the world that a glacier ends in a rain forest and that is in South America. The face of the glacier is very high (you can see the little dots that are people) and is constantly depositing more rubble. The pile of rocks we were standing on is 150 feet higher than the floor of the valley was 100 years ago. (I hope I have those numbers right. Its a lot of extra rocks, regardless.)
