“Coincidence” is something that can make people feel strange. I was posting pictures of our Greenland adventure and the next one I’ve picked to post was taken inside an ice cave. Then I saw this week’s photo challenge theme: Inside. What a coincidence!
As I mentioned in my previous posts, we had a boat trip to see glacier while we were in Tasiilaq, Greenland. As we arrived the glacier site, we were left there for a couple of hours to explore the area ourselves. Most of our companion travellers walked up to the glacier but my wife and myself were attracted by something under it: an ice cave. So we decided to move down instead to enter the cave.
The walk wasn’t too difficult although it was a bit slippery. As we entered the cave, it turned out that it wasn’t a very deep cave. There was icy water dripping out from the small cracks on the wall and it tasted really good and refreshing. You can also see at the left side of the picture, the ice had a glowing blue colour which was extremely beautiful.
Even though we visited the cave at the expense of a chance to walk on a glacier, I think it was worthwhile. However, later I learned both walking on a glacier or visiting a ice cave without a proper tour guide are actually very dangerous. Any part of the glacier can collapse any time and so walking on it is taking the risk of dropping and being in a ice cave can cause us being buried!
