Massive, towering, seemingly animate. Giants sitting. With a coat of armor in an icy kingdom. A natural protector of majestic trees. With an illusion of cotton, but the feel of marble. Inside: quiet, still, a haven. Outside: harsh, rough, battered. An amazing scientific phenomenon.
And to experience these first-hand, you must be willing to go up. Up into the ice world on top. All photos courtesy of Zach Heller.
