Alaska's Radiant Mendenhall Ice Caves In Glaciers

The Mendenhall Ice Caves near Juneau, Alaska sat inside a 12-mile long glacier. The water melted from the glacier carves caves into this natural landscape, a popular spot for tourists. Ironically, the warmer temperatures that caused these beautiful caves are also what destroyed them.
