Le glacier du Rhône est revouvert de draps blancs en été afin de le protéger de la chaleur. Avec le réchauffement climatique, il fond à vue d’oeil et aura complètement disparu d’ici quelques décennies. @stephanie.buret
Rhone Glacier is covered by white blankets to prevent melting. @stephanie.buret #switzerland#rhoneglacier
Rhône glacier between Furka and Grimsel Pass. Yes, I'm standing on solid ice.
Sadly, the glacier lost a great part of its ice due to climate warming. They had a few pictures at the entrance of what it looked like around 1900 and it was mindblowing. I wish I could have seen that, though I need to admit that I was stunned by its current size as well (the picture doesn't do it justice). To reduce the melting, they started covering the ice with white blankets. If you look closely, you can see some on the left side of the picture.
Furka Pass was filled with beauty from all angles. This was overlooking the water flowing from the Rhône Glacier as we made our way to the ice caves. #switzerland#furkapass#rhoneglacier
Simply WOW! Such an iconic car on the legendary Furkapass is something you don’t see every day. One of our friends took the chance and turned this into an everlasting memory.... Pictures by: @denniswierenga
