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

 Scientists say they will gone in 80 years.

  1. 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 🙂

    1. 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.
