  1. The stuff we do to bring back photos for the Cafe :cool: ...

    One of the hikes offered in Sam Ford Fjord on Baffin Island, Canada was up to and possibly onto a glacier, about a mile from shore. Nan & I decided to give it a go.

    It was slow and careful going because of all the boulders in the moraine that we had to climb over:

    After a lot of rocks, we could at least see the glacier:

    After nearly thirty minutes we were getting closer:

    Then it was up onto the ice:

    Part was snow covered, but even the icy part was not very slippery:

    There were several big rocks "plucked" from the cliff faces on the ice:

    Looking back into the fjord, you could see our ship:

    Time to head back down (climbing down is harder than climbing up :confused: ):
