While we never made it to the first glacier on our agenda, due to too heavy an ice flow, I got my first look at dense blue ice and was wowed. I’d heard of it but never expected to see it this blue. Being awed by these blue ice bergs was only surpassed by seeing and hearing the glaciers.
The glacier in the last picture here was not the destination glacier we where looking for. I was just the first one I saw in route. The close we got to a glacier the more turquoise color the water got until it became creamy white due to the increase glacier silt deposited in the water. This makes the water close to glacier uninhabitable for fish.
