The sheer power of glaciers to carve out new landscapes is well documented. But less so is their ability to produce stunningly intricate and beautiful scenes beneath deep their surface. These caves were sculpted by melting ice which formed a stream running through glaciers at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in the U.S. state of Alaska.

Glacier Bay National Park is a constantly changing landscape consisting of 3.3million acres of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, temperate rainforest, wild coastlines and deep, sheltered fjords. It forms part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site, one of the world’s largest international protected areas.

Lucky folks to be able to explore those beautiful Ice Caverns. Oh to be young again.

How fortunate we are today to be able to discover/learn about and experience such wonders of Nature... many that are only here for a brief time.

Again, as with Space, we as humans have to document and record these things for the future residence-especially if we were to have a very bad Life Ending Event- maybe we can preserve enough for the next race to really know what we did and try to do.

Who knows. Enjoy it while you can. Any ATSers ever been here/ done this/that?

Come on now... I know we have some cave crawlers here on ATS.

Maybe this type of caving is fairly new founded and isn't that well know.

Hmmm, I would find that hard to believe.. but. Maybe the residences learned a long time ago it
maybe best to just stay out of them and/or keep quiet about it... So the secret beauty doesn't get ruined.

Looking at the pics I notice that the walls all seem to have the same texture.

I wonder what type of water movement or ice melting would cause that appearance.

Where are the ice experts! lol

I was wondering about the cleanliness of the water. I figured someone would say something similar to your.

Is it really that clean? With all the human crap in the air and whatnot?

The water would be run through the normal filtering processes as water in.... near a mountainous area. I would think.

There, it just falls and freezes.

Its like a natural spring. The glacial water is at the freezing point, coldest, freshest water you'll ever drink. Thik of the biggest filter on earth the "glacier". you can even find gold in the bottom of water pools, it acts like a huge gold pan.
marvelous it is friend, a must try, the water and gold!

Yes, it is some of the purest water on earth! Makes me gag at the thought of drinking bottled water, yelchhh.
