An hour into our trek across the ice, our guide Nick, surprised us and took us to the mouth of a hidden ice cave. These caves are constantly changing shape and size as they collapse and are reformed by the water that carves its way through the ice.
From the outside (top photo) there is almost no sign of the cave below hundreds of feet of ice. Since we had such a small, fit group, Nick felt safe guiding us deep into the cave. I have to say, out of all the places I have traveled, this is pretty close to the top. I have never experienced something so surreal.
