Description:
This category contains waymarks of ice and rock glaciers.
Expanded Description:
If you have visited an ice or rock glacier, it belongs in this waymark category.
Instructions for Posting a Glaciers Waymark:
The name of the waymark should be the official name of the glacier.

To enter a new waymark, you must post a photograph [TAKEN FROM A SAFE LOCATION] and brief description of the glacier, including:

1. The source of its name
2. A description of how best to SAFELY access the glacier (e.g., hiking via a specific trail, boating via a particular inlet, helicopter), specifically addressing accessibility for less-abled visitors
3. Any historic background on the glacier or the local area that visitors may find useful
4. An indication of whether the glacier is advancing or retreating
5. The body of water fed by the glacier.

When specifying the location of the glacier, use a location that most people would go to SAFELY view the glacier. Some glaciers have multiple access points, so use judgment in selecting a point that will appeal to the greatest number of visitors.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. However, if the waymark is written in a language other than English, an English translation is required. The English translation does not need to be perfect, just clear enough for the Officers and other viewers to understand what the waymark is about. And, as always, please cite your sources. Thank you!

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To log an existing waymark, you must post a photograph of you and the glacier [TAKEN FROM A SAFE LOCATION], and describe briefly how you arrived there.
