Travelers Tips and Stories about Cave

I took this picture on the way down after a beautiful morning. The trees, called Larchs, turn stunningly colourful each year. But since this is only for a few weeks (or almost days). I’m glad that I could find the time and see them with my own eyes. Because the valley is super tall, the sun did not reach most of it until afternoon. This lead to those beautifully lit peaks just after lunchtime.
I came to the glacier at 5 am when and found no traces of life except for an old yellow school bus used as an office for a local tour company. Signs “Do not go without a helmet and ice cleats” couldn’t stop my inner adventurer. So I went alone. I went pretty far and the terrain started looking more and more intimidating. If you fell in a crack, you’re done. After getting a good number of pictures, I turned back and successfully got out of there carrying a good amount of pics and memories.
A popular place for most tourists, my group of friends and I wanted to beat the rush. We arrived shortly after sunrise and began the hike and descent into the canyon in order to share the sound of rushing water alone. It is truly marvelous at the feat mother nature has created here.
What seems like floating up in the air, is just the light effect that the torch does, reflecting from the water. I was standing also on a rock in the middle of a water stream. Picture was taken at midnight in a canyon. There is a small glimpse of green up in the sky, those were the auroras that were outside the canyon
I had the experience of going inside of a glacier - a rare opportunity. It won’t be available in 10 years time because of the glacier melting and hence becoming unstable. You may not believe that Global Warming is caused by man but it’s certainly exists and is a threat to mankind.
I’ve seen them pictured online, but experiencing the glow worms in person was phenomenal. The way they scattered the walls, very much alive and wiggling. I learned they’re not actually worms, but larvae that feed for 9 months, then live as adults for 2-3 days. That’s just enough time to mate, lay eggs, and die. An unfortunate life in my opinion, but man are they beautiful.
