In a few hours it will officially be Memorial Day Weekend! Do you guys have any plans? I’ll be at wedding #2 of 3. If you’ve been reading some of my blog posts the past 1-2 weeks then you know I have 3 weddings to attend within 4 weeks, so we’re up to the 2nd one now. I have an event tonight for it and then all day tomorrow so I’m happy it is a long weekend!
For last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post, “Liquid“, I decided to go with the icy variety of liquid. If you’ve been a long time reader of my blog then you may remember that a few summers ago I went on vacation to Alaska. One of the coolest things I did there was take a helicopter to a glacier and walk around on it. Mendenhall Glacier, to be exact.
Glaciers are formed from layers and layers of snow compressing down on each other over years. Mendenhall Glacier started forming in southeast Alaska 3,000 years ago! So I’m literally standing on a glacier, which in a sense a form of liquid, in this photo. It was so amazing to experience! Sadly, with climate change the glacier is getting smaller and smaller every year which is really scary.
If you’re interested in learning more about my excursion to the glacier and seeing more photos, I’ve linked to my blog post above!
