Evian has nothing on this.

Grinnell Glacier is relativly easy to get up close and personal with. Like many people, I had only seen glaciers on the side of drinking water bottles. To see this one, all you have to do is go to the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park and hike five miles up the side of a mountain.

It was so pretty, and full of huge, jaw-dropping vistas, that I didn't have time to be tired. And then, before i knew it, I was dipping my toe in a glacier.

The actual thing is hard to capture in a photo because it covers three hundred acres.

There is a good chance that in thirty years it will be gone.

Here are some links to external pictures, if you want to see the whole thing: Picture 1 Picture 2 (
