|The enormus glaciers of the Chile Mountains covering Argentina's territory. The glacier in the picture is closing the outlet of the lake. After some years when the level of the lake is up to 100 feet or more the ice dam will breake. That happens only a few times witnessed by people. Due to the rising temperatures its unlikely in the next time.||07/30/2005||500|
|Bow Lake, in the Canadian (Albertan to be precise) Rockies. In Glorious Random High-Definition.|

|The fastest-moving major glacier is the Columbia glacier, between Anchorage and Valdez, in Alaska, USA. In 1999 it was measured to be flowing at an average rate of 35 m (115 ft) per day. The glacier has almost doubled its previously recorded speed of 20 m (65 ft) per day, possibly due to global warming. Glaciers are large moving masses if ice formed in (usually mountainous) regions where the ra...||04/25/2006||1,225|
