Video: Daring adventures Into Alaska's Blue Ice

Alaskan Alan Gordon and friends spent a year filming their climbing feats on the Juneau Icefield and inside its blue-ice cracks and tunnels. Gordon is working on a documentary that he hopes will call attention to Alaska's vanishing glaciers. In the meantime, the U.K.'s Daily Mail has posted a series of spectacular still photos and a video from Gordon that'll be especially thrilling to ice climbers. "My goal for this film is to show everyone places in time that won't be there forever," Gordon told the Daily Mail.

NFO, I did a little (VERY little) of that, years ago. It was spectacularly beautiful, and spectacularly cold.


PH, indeed it is.
