Photographer's Note

Found this glacial cave midway on a hike from Grindelwald to Eigergletcher. Previously, I posted a photo showing the front opening (HERE)
This one shows the other side. While inside I could hear the sound of dripping water & falling pebbles. They gave such haunting echoes. I didn't stay inside too long for fear of the small glacier which was shape like a dome collapsing on me. It was a hot day on Sept 22, 2006. Coming from a warm country (Malaysia) I thought the sun was not a problem to me. I got my lips burned that day. The lady from the pharmacy in Grindelwald told me it was the sun plus the high altitude that did it. Anyway, it was an exciting & surprising find for me as I didn't expect to find this small patch of glacier which would probably be gone in a few years.
