Tszil Glacier moraine
Canada

Standing on the moraine of Tszil Glacier in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park near Pemberton, British Columbia.  It is just northwest of the main trail that hits all three of the Joffre Lakes.  Like the other glaciers on the Mt. Matier massif, it is rapidly retreating, today it is hardly more than a small icefield tucked within the ravine b/w Slalok & Tszil Mountain.  Compared to its former size which poured down and covered much of the upper valley parallel to this moraine, Tszil Glacier has probably seen at least an 80% reduction in volume.  The moraine is comprised of compacted mud, gravel, & boulders, but is easily erodable w/ unstable slopes.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
