Entry Description

This photo was taken in a narrow ice cave near Exit Glacier in Seward, Alaska, so narrow that I had to crawl in carefully without damaging the structure. The melting of all the glaciers on earth is speeding up due to the worsening of the global warming. The Mendenhall ice cave in Juneau, Alaska, which was once one of the most spectacular scenes in the world, has disappeared. How many other magnificent views do we have to destroy before we wake up and try our best to make a difference?
