The two RV Gypsies and their family hiked up Worthington Glacier to the ice cave yesterday - today they hiked up the other side of Worthington Glacier (the easier side to hike).

The hole shown below appeared right where Renee had just stepped. Her footprint disappeared down the hole. Lee tossed a rock near the hole to see if the area was stable, and the hole got bigger. Well, it IS posted as an unstable glacier. Even though everyone was on rocks, it is a glacier with many layers of ice under the rocks.

Lee climbed down the cliff and signaled Kristen that it was OK to continue.

After descending Worthington Glacier, there was time for a quick stroll beside the lake- and to take some pictures looking back up at the glacier.

NOTE: All glaciers are dangerous and it really is NOT safe to walk or climb on one without a professional guide, and all signs should be obeyed. In hindsight, the two RV Gypsies realized that they risked the lives of themselves and their family. The two RV Gypsies do NOT recommend anyone else to do what they did. Everyone is responsible for their own actions and safety.

NOTE: The two RV Gypsies brought family members back to Alaska in 2016 and they hiked Worthington Glacier again. They were surprised to find a waterfall there this time. If you wish to see those photos and read some interesting signs about glaciers, click here now. There will be a link back to this page at the bottom of the 2016 page so that you can continue with the sub-menu navigation below.

This is not meant to be a linear site, but it can be via the link with the arrow at the bottom of each page. However, there is often a sub-menu such as the one below with six sites, and sometimes there is a link forward or backwards in time for corresponding pages, such as the links at the very bottom of this page. Of course there is always the navigational buttons at the top of the page, and the TOC.
