Photographer's Note

This was a revelation to me, that there is a "Silt Line" floating along the perimeter of the glacier. Apparently, the glacier moves along crushing rocks and earth beneath it. When the glacier calves into the water the silt is released, creating the silt line and bits of ice. They sell this silt (read: dirt) in the tourist stores for $3 a vial.
