View of glacier from Panorama Ridge

I’m back in Canada!  Less than 10 hours after arriving back in Canada after being in Germany for over a year I headed to the mountains to Panorama Ridge, a scramble I’ve been wanting to do for a while.  It’s  aptly named with impressive views, but I was most impressed by the glacier on Mt. Quadra.  After a couple of hours of climbing higher, it became apparent to me exactly why glaciers can be so dangerous:

Check out the large crack that goes all away across the glacier near the top.  Thankfully I was on the over side of the lake, far out of reach, but from down below the giant crack was not visible.  I think I’ll stick to hiking and scrambling!
