Aialik Glacer

Glaciers are huge. This boat continues to get closer and closer to the glacier and the people on deck are indeterminable from our vantage point.

As you can see the ice is "bluish".

The snow packs and becomes very heavy which causes the ice / snow to move down the mountain. The density of the ice makes it such that it doesn't melt like normal ice. It is great for beer coolers I'm told.
