Its amazing just to actually see what global warming has done-up close and personal. Great history lesson on the glaciers and what changes have occurred...although still beautiful, it's really sad too. Narrated perfectly with demonstrated visuals, this was a fascinating tour.

Albert was excellent again. I made a mistake in my previous review this is the one with the wonderful postcard of the glacier reflection. :)

I loved all the geology and fantastic scenery! You made it all so interesting! I live in Canada, in the Rocky Mountains. It was interesting to see your glaciers with the volcanic ash! Sad that all the glaciers are melting so fast! Here also! 😕😕😕
