On the Ice…..
40 people traipsing around on a Glacier, sounds fun, Right? I love being in the out doors connecting with nature, exploring. But doing it with 40 others, all talking, wow. I wish I could have said “And now a moment of silence, to take in all the beauty around us” but no. How I dealt with this was to get the last spot. The end of the train, so I could walk in peace. The blue of the ice is amazing, then lines of black, ash from eruptions and dust storms. I would not have thought it but I guess Dust storms are a huge issue and entire farm lands can have the top soil removed back to volcanic lava, the top soil just blows away.
You can see that the Glaciers are receding, melting away. Global warming in action.
What I learned today…..
That wearing a skirt on the Glacier I feel like I am an women’s explorer from the 1900’s.
That cramp ons are fun and jumping on Glaciers is exciting.
That americans can come up with a lots of jokes about Cramp ons, because it sounds like tampon, yes it is true “can I borrow a cramp on” “Wow I need a cramp on” they went on for awhile. I did laugh.
