This past Sunday (March 1) I revisited an ice cave I stumbled upon a year ago while hiking up the center of Canwell Glacier. After scrambling over and under some large pieces of ice that had collapsed around the entrance some time since last winter, I followed the pitch black tunnel of ice in the picture for several hundred feet through twists and turns and a mini-cavern until it abruptly closed up.
