Greenland: Inland ice of the Grenlandic ice sheet
Over 90% of Greenland is covered by a massive ice sheet, thousands of miles of snow and ice slowly flowing toward the coast. It is the second largest body of ice in the world after Antarctica and is nearly 2 miles (3km) deep in most places. It is over 100,000 years old. It is a totally otherworldly and surreal to fly over this at low altitude and see all the icefields, glacier meltwater lakes, rivers, canyons, and streams, and endless crevasses with absolutely insane textures and panoramas. It’s like being on another planet!
