Under the Glacier

Spent a Christmas day outdoors exploring ice caves of Stutfield Glacier in Jasper National Park. This place is amazing! Each year there is new ice feature created by nature that being erased the next season by ice melting.

On the way to the glacier there are plenty of beautiful views

Entrance to the cave is right in the middle of the lower outcrop of the glacier

The entrance is quite narrow and a bit sketchy as you have to drag yourself through pile of ice rubble at the entrance.

As well as heavy snow overhangs right above the cave. It is surely great idea to keep someone outside at all times in case entrance gets blocked by an unexpected avalanche. We have actually witnessed one happening higher up from the glacier.
