Natural science

There are some experiences that words can't begin to describe. The photos won't do it justice either, but today, I'll let the pictures do most of the talking. This is Prince Christian Sound, on the southern tip of Greenland:

At the entrance to the sound.

For the purposes of scale, see if you can locate a very tiny black dot near the center of the ice floe. That's a harp seal.

Prince Christian Sound was profoundly quiet, so much so that I could hear the splash of the glacier-fed waterfalls.

This glacier calved as we passed. You can see the splash of the water as the ice hit it.

Go listen to some great music: "Natural Science" from the album Permanent Waves by Rush.
