A Glacier in Fast-Forward

Franz Josef Glacier as seen from the valley floor. This 12km-long glacier can be found on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island, in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park.

 Ever wanted to see a glacier flowing in high speed? No? Never really thought about it? Yeah… me neither. And then I saw this video and it totally blew my mind…

  1. Pretty awesome that. They once had a microphone on a glacier connected to a phone line. You could call it up and listen to the sound of the ice cracking and moving. Thousands of people called it from all over the world. I remember seeing the list.

    • How lovely! Dial an elemental! Free relationship advice! Probably not… but I reckon the mind-expanding effect of listening to the Earth literally talking might distract one from one’s problems for a least a few minutes. Thanks for sharing!
