The hike up to the glacier was challenging, since the air is so thin and the elevation is so high. There were a lot of rocks in the trail, which made it easy to trip and fall down.
Beneath the glacier is a lake, which is crystal clear. The water is very cold, though, since the lake is filled up by glacial melt. All along the lake there are cliffs and boulders which tourists like to jump off of into the water. Even though the water is freezing, it’s refreshing on a hot day.

这些是我参观科罗拉多州圣玛丽冰川时拍的照片。 虽已是盛夏，但雪始终不化。 徒步前往冰川的人通常会携带滑雪板。
冰川下面是一个湖，湖水清澈见底。 然而，水很冷，因为湖水被冰川融化填满了。 沿湖有悬崖和巨石，游客喜欢跳入水中。 即使水结冰，在炎热的天气里也很清爽。
