02/21/2009: "The Mighty Glacier"
On Thursday I went for a walk out to the Mendenhall Glacier with my friend Wendy during my lunch break. I had never done it before, you can only go when the lake is frozen. It was "mostly" frozen, and at one point the glacier made a loud noise from deep inside and Wendy and I both took off running. Still, it was pretty incredible to see up close. These photos really do not do it justice.
This first one is take some distance away. That dark blue slit towards the middle is what I'm posing in front of in the next shot.
