It takes 100 feet of snow to, overtime, form one foot of strong, blue glacier ice. That’s just amazing to me.
I heard about this incredible fact during a visit to the Meade Glacier near Skagway, Alaska, with my family earlier today. As we set foot atop this incredible block of ice forged through the centuries, I could not help but be in awe of Nature — and of these incredible blocks of ice formed over thousands of years. I had flown onto a glacier before, but the experience still grabbed me.
As I looked around the unforgettable vastness of white and blue ice, it struck me: we are glaciers too. Spiritual glaciers.
