we took a small plane and flew over several beautiful glaciers to a remote lodge that was built in the 1920's. then we ate grilled salmon that had been caught that morning and warmed ourselves by the fire that was crackling and popping in the huge stone fireplace. a fantastic meal and place. it was so still and quiet there. the glacier that was two miles away from us was called hole in the wall glacier and we were informed that it was a dancing glacier meaning that by the time 80 years rolls around, the glacier will have overtaken the very spot we were standing on. nice to know that not every glacier is slipping away from us.
