Today’s photo comes from Trey Ratcliff during his hike in the Andes. An awesome shot where you can just see the glacier coming down between the mountains, with amazing cloud formations overhead. Here’s what he had to say:
About to cross the stream on the hike, approaching the blue glacier.
This is about 20km into our backpacking. The fertile soil from recent glaciation sprang colorful life everywhere, even as the valley was changing colors for autumn. Little streams trickled here and there and fell into larger streams. Fording some of these was always a little sketchy when carrying a bunch of expensive camera equipment, but it was always worth it.
