Jasper Journey – the Vanishing Glaciers – Columbia Icefields

25 Aug


Blue Canadian Rockies / Vera Lynn

The Columbia Icefields seem massive. Yet year by year, the glaciers recede.
Soon to be gone. 

 Scientists say they will gone in 80 years.

See those dots?
Those are people. 

But we missed our scheduled Icefield Tour.
Have to come back tomorrow. 
See you then.

    Great post 🙂 And let us hope The Columbia Ice Fields remain longer than what scientists are predicting. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      It seems they are correct. It’s also worth noting that a lot of our fresh water comes from these sources. We better figure something out soon.
