Blue Ice in Alaska?

Are they really blue?

Yes, they are.

I took a helicopter ride to the Glacier and these are what I saw.

 

 

 

We are made to wear those ice shoes, wrapped outside of our original shoes. Really grippy on ice!

 

 

The Excursion cost US$289 per pax. I drank 2 mouthful of Glacier water. They’re mineral water, the best drinking water for our well being. Working mathematically, each mouthful cost me US$144.50. I rather get a eSpring water treatment system, serious!

The reason the ice and water is blue, because it is compressed ice, with little or no bubbles, the light has to traveled longer and all other spectrum of colour has been absorbed, except blue. So blue colour is being emitted. Water and Ice that you drink is still colourless, not blue.

It is okay if one does not understand. Just like Electricity, even if one don’t understand it but one still benefits from it. You can turn on or off an electrical appliance and it’ll work for you. Likewise in some businesses, one don’t have to know the mechanics of it but following a successful mentor and leader in the field, you too can be successful.
