I visited Exit Glacier in May 1997 and have happy memories climbing around the terminal moraine and even into an ice cave! On my return in May 2014 things have changed. I’ll let the photos do the talking!

May 1997 that little dot on the left wearing a yellow backpack is me standing on the terminal moraine, bit of a change!

The end of the glacier May 2014. I would have been about 50m under the glacier in May 1997, millions of tons of ice has since melted!
