DAY 8: August 11/13

Day 8,Sunday, August 11/13
Situated behind Qeqertarsuaq is Greenland’s most infamous glacier, the Jakobshavn Glacier – where the melting ice fronts gather at the terminal moraine. We hiked across moss covered landscape, on a designated pathway for about 3 kilometers,  to this spectacular moraine where huge icebergs were moving at a fast pace, all crashing, melting and breaking before our eyes, evidence of the increasing rate of ice melt in Greenland.  I have traveled all seven continents, and this truly was one of the most amazing sites that I have had the opportunity to view.  It was glacially, artistically, and spiritually awesome.
