Big 4 Ice Caves in Washington by Michael Matti

This weekend was my first time doing the Big 4 Ice Caves Hike in Washington. It is a short hike that takes you up to this huge ice mass with caves in it caused by the melting ice. While its interesting to look at from outside the caves, it is much more amazing from inside them. It probably isn’t the safest thing to do considering the possibility of falling ice chunks inside the cave but the intrigue of it was just too much. I tried to stay toward the edges of the cave or the parts that looked stronger but did venture out into the center to grab this shot of someone exploring the ice cave.
