Today I walked up the Gorner Gorge as far as I could travel to the snout of the Gorner Glacier.
The only sound to be heard was the roar of water. Every time I take a look at the water pouring off a glacier I wonder how there is any ice left at all. The volume of water is phenomenal.
This image was taken from the limit of my journey today. There was no possibility of further progress. With each puff of breeze, the air was filled with a fine mist – you may be able to see it hanging in the air above the water in the image (click on the image for a higher quality enlargement).
I will return to this walk in a future post. There’s a lot more to this walk than just this single image.
