Having worked a variety of jobs that dealt directly and indirectly with customers and guests, I’ve noticed one thing: people will go out of their way to make sure their complaint about the service/food/cleanliness of the bathroom/etc is heard, but rarely will they put effort in to offering a compliment or saying something nice about the excellent service they received.

Mendenhall Ice Caves - Juneau, Alaska 

In few places can you experience every stage of the water cycle at once. But there’s magic in the Mendenhall Ice Caves, where water runs over rocks under blue ceilings inside a partially hollow glacier. 

The Mendenhall Glacier is a 12-mile-long glacier in the Mendenhall Valley, located only 12 miles from downtown Juneau in Southeast Alaska. Federally protected as part of the Mendenhall Galcier Recreation Area, a unit of the Tongass National Forest, the glacier originally had two names, Sitaantaagu (“Glacier Behind the Town”) and Aak’wtaaksit (“Glacier Behind the Little Lake”). 

The Ice Caves are inside the glacier, accessible only to those willing to kayak to, and then ice climb over the glacier. However, the glacier is retreating increasingly fast as global warming heats the oceans and temperatures rise. 

Images of the caves circulate the internet with such captions as “otherworldly” and “surreal,” but “melting” and “fleeting” could be used as well, as this glacier creates incredible new landscapes while we watch it melt away.
