Counting the Years

Counting the Years

There’s a cave build into the glacier that can be visited 51 weeks a year. We visited during the one week it’s closed… Because the interior of the glacier moves slower than the edge (I read somewhere it’s 45 m at the center and 90 m at the edge), a new entrance has to be dug every year.
