We carried on as far the road allowed us until we got to what seemed like an abandoned mine. Further down, one of the arms of the glacier was dying in a little pond of freezing cold water. We glanced at each other... it was not far, the slope was not that steep. Let's go touch the toes of the glacier. After 20 minutes, we were there. What an exhilarating feeling! Facing this wonder of nature. I even found an opening large enough for us to get into the glacier! It's just like being inside a fridge... except everything is bathed the most celestial of blue light... Looking at the stone touching the ice, you realize the strength of the ice, carving its way through the rocks... Impressive. A moment I'll never forget.
