WITH A CRACKLING ROAR HUNDREDS OF TONS OF ICE TAKE A HIGH DIVE FROM THE CLIFF OFSOUTH CRILLON GLACIER A giant pinnacle has just hit the water and the camera has caught the beginning of the splash. The clouds of spray often rose nearly 100feet into theair,and six-foot waves foamed far up onto beaches more than a mile away. The picture was taken from the Expedition's canoe, whichwas rocked unpleasantly but notupset. The 160 foot ice cliff towering to the right is beautifully colored in every conceivable hue of blue and green, veined with brilliant ruddy rock and dirt (seeillustrations, pages 369, 381, and 384, and text, page 365).
