Kilimanjaro ice cave

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Tom Pattee

While I'm not expecting this to win anything, it' s a picture of something that won't exist in the future. The Furtwangler Glacier pictured through the ice cave is predicted to be gone by 2020. There's always something sad about the disappearance of anything on this planet.

Location: Kibo Crater, Mt. Kilimanjaro
