Photos of the day: Glacial melting
Did you know that Colombia has not one, not two, but 7 – SEVEN – glaciers?? Another surprise from Colombia. We visited one on a fun day tour from Manizales, and it was amazing to go from the lush green coffee region to a barren, moon-like world at 4800 meters – that’s 15,748 feet – in just a couple of hours. Above is a mossy patch fed by melting glacial ice. We stopped to take a drink of the pure, ancient water, whose source is the glacier below.
