The Big Aletsch Glacier is the largest Glacier of the Alps, some 24 km long and approx 900m thick at a maximum.
There are several spots where the glacier shows very different faces, on this one, it holds a small lake. I really like this place, and it’s a good start for a walk on the huge glacier itself. The +Swiss Photography Club G+ organizes a photowalk on the glacier surface on August 18, 2012. However, this wonderful spot is worth a visit as the dimensions of the glacier unfolds unexpectedly.
I tried to convince my friend to swim over there for a sense of scale, but she refused… So all we have for that is the little waves.
