Camping amongst Glaciers

... we saw on the sides of the road these large expanses of white rock. But was it rock? No, it was snow. We'd found glaciers! I pulled over, we took some photos and I got the chance to throw a few snowballs at Jess, but sadly I missed. We continued along the main road, looking for places to camp, but being in glacier territory there was no longer any forest. On either side of us it was lakes, glaciers, rocks or alpine grass.
