The next one shows the landscape created by the loss of horizontal velocity between the back and front of the glacier...the ice has to go somewhere, can't go down (rock), so it goes up. Its almost like tectonic plates in miniature and ice.
Me again and actually on the glacier this time. Note the appearance of two extra layers of clothing on the upper body, it was kinda cold up there. Which might justhave something to do with the several thousand tonnes of ice I'm standing on at the time. :)
The interesting thing that this picture shows is that the glacier isn't all ice, there's a fair bit of rock being carried along for the ride (and which I understand significantly contributes to the gouging effect of an advancing glacier)
*Not entirely true, the lycra longs were my best wet weather option but the general sentiment still holds. :)
