Swimming Pool?

"Scuba View" - Joe films Alan climbing from the surface of a crystal clear bue pool 500ft up onto the Mendenhall Glacier

The above photo summarizes the purpose of yesterday’s helicopter flight out to the glacier. I never would have guessed (even a week ago) that I would see someone scuba diving in a supraglacial pool this summer, but it sure was fun. The short video below shows the bonus round where I tried to do Corey proud with dual cameras running. Cold water? Yeah, I think so!

I leave this afternoon for a trip down to Phoenix and the Southwest. It would be a real change of pace is we hadn’t had our nicest days of the year so far in Juneau in this past week. I still don’t think I’m prepared for Sunday’s forecasted 105 degrees. “Think…cool,…think…COOL…”
