Amazing.

Here’s the most powerful force in Europe.

Just south of the Jungfraujoch four glaciers come together creating the incredible

Konkordiaplatz!

 

A plateau of glaciers all joining forces on an inexorable journey to the south.

Here intrepid Swiss miners dig out nearly one tonne of hardened ice per day  which is used to make Foxes Glacier Mints!

The mass of snow and ice is nearly 3000 ft deep, and charges along at 2 inches per day.

Not sure what 3000 feet looks like?

Click here, and be amazed.

Oh, and not all the facts in the post are 100% reliable.
