On my trip to #Canada this year I was able to see a couple glaciers. On nearby signs, you could see diagrams of how massive the particular glacier used to be and along the trails there would be markings with specific years showing how much they have #receded over time.
This is the #AthabascaGlacier—but really, it’s a small piece of what it used to be. The section with all the dirt is the #moraine, which is an imprint of how wide and extensive the glacier was.
#ClimateChange within recent years has especially been detrimental to our #glaciers.
Remember that you can lower your #CarbonFootprint by changing your #diet.
Thank you for #caring
Want to know something crazy?? This was my first EVER under-the-veil shot. And let me tell you, they're harder than they look!! Trying to not pull on her hair while still trying to get that shot is HARD!! 😅 But I love how this turned out!! Such a tender moment!! 😍

PL/ENG Ślady dawnej działalności lodowców są obecne w górach na całym świecie i zawierają m.in. cyrki lodowcowe (rozległe amfiteatralne zagłębienia pomiędzy górskimi stokami), moreny, doliny U-kształtne i wiele innych. Tutaj: piękny cyrk Wielkiego Śnieżnego Kotła w Karkonoszach, które obecnie są zdecydowanoe zbyt niskie, aby utrzymać lodowce, ale które były w sam raz w czasie ostatniej Epoki Lodowej 20 tys. lat temu. Zarośnięty wał na dnie cyrku to stara, ale dobrze zachowana morena czołowa.
Signs of past glacial activity are present in mountains across the world and include glacial cirques (vast hollows among mountains slopes), moraines, U-shaped valleys and many more. Here: a beautiful cirque in Karkonosze #mountains, #Poland, which are far too low (~1,500 m) to sustain glaciers under modern climate, but were just fine during the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago. The vegetated ridge at the cirque floor is an old, but well preserved terminal moraine.
Epic landscape going up to Cautley Spout, England’s highest waterfall, near Sedbergh, Cumbria. Actually though it’s also in the Yorkshire Dales, just to be confusing. Amazing place, it has the remains of an Iron Age village and I got all the vibes, so I highly suspect the site was of huge ritual significance. In fact I had a panic attack half way up the mountain (well it was treacherous and I wasn’t wearing proper footgear) but once I calmed down, I felt purged of something bad! It’s a great place for geographers and geomorphologists too, just look at that moraine! P.S. after that I bought some summer climbing frog shoes, so don’t worry. #cautleyspout#sedbergh#yorkshiredales#geomorphology#moraine#screeslope#glaciated#ironage#britain#england#uk
From peaks to troughs. Camp had to be set up in strategic points to avoid being too close to the glacial run-off river, and out of harm's way from the frequent rock falls. Since temperatures were reaching some of its highest, glaciers were melting at uneven rates. The river could swell to 200x within a few hours. The summer heat also brought in an abundance of mosquitoes. The record heat in the Arctic increased freeze-thaw weathering, which made the rockfalls from the vertical edges far more likely to put our lives in danger. It often took us hours to find a good spot.
Tarn lakes and jagged edges. Where the vertical pushes the imagination as far as the horizontal would go. One can't appreciate space without being in a place that none other goes.
Throwback to a favourite winter scene on Moraine Lake. Doesn’t get much more peaceful than this.
First day in Banff at the start of summer. We pulled into the park an hour before sunset and was able to finally experience this place after having it on my bucket list for years
