EARTH DAY 2012 AT MENDENHALL GALCIER IN JUNEAU, AK Mendenhall Glacier is crumbling from within and it is super noticeable in the 4 years that I have been observing it. Those who have been watching it for 20 years are amazed at how it has changed. I have had old timers tell me that the rate of destruction is increasing. Visitors come to the Glacier and they see a Glacier which is huge. It is still 100 miles long and for one who has not seen it before, it looks immense. I have seen it long enough to see the significant changes which have taken place in the short span of 4 years. I know some folks like to play the NO GLOBAL WARMING GAME but they are full of crap. I see it, it is real. I read where we have 5 years to seriously try to get our carbon problem worked on before we cannot fix it- time is running short. Enjoy your Earth Day but take what happens to our environment, and planet, seriously please.

Hiking on the Treadwell Trail in Douglas. The snow has melted so I am on trail now. The waterfall is the Glory Hole. It is all part of an old mining operation from the turn of the century. There is a backbone to some animal. It was beneath the snow but now that the snow is gone - I found it.
