ABC Wednesday—I is for "ice"

In June, my daughter Katie took this shot of 
one of the ice caves in the Mendenhall Glacier, 
which is about 12 miles from Juneau and is part of 
the Tongass National Forest.  A month later, some of the 
roof of one of the caves collapsed (not sure if it was
this very one).  The ice had thinned out due to 
you-know-what.  Even here, you can see 
how much the ice is melting at the entrance.

  3. Katie is very brave. I would have wanted this shot but the idea of it would frighten me due to YOU KNOW WHAT! :)

  4. Agree she was brave. But her bravery yielded a beautiful photo.

  6. I love the translucent turquoise. It looks like a slo-mo version of this sport.

    The water dripping at the entrance must be cold. Maybe even refreshing. Maybe drinking it would be a kind of tonic. Let me get my glass.

    Hmm. For what reason would the Tongass National Forest appeal to Katie?
