... Savage trail in Denali - we ran into a couple visiting from England, we chatted for a few minutes and found out that they were from Manchester.

... off the end of the glacier into the water & become icebergs, each one is called a calf. Icebergs appear mostly white because of the properties of light reflection. The whiter an iceberg is the more air that's trapped in it, thousands of air bubbles get trapped between each snowflake as the snow falls. Blue streaks in icebergs are where melt water runs into cracks and crevasses of the glaciers and then re-freezes. It was fascinating looking at the glacier ...
