Ice Age Fini

The last Ice Age ended somewhere around 11,700 years ago.

Since then glacier around the globe have shrunk from the North and South Poles.

Presently I reside in Juneau, Alaska. The Mendenhall glacier is fourteen miles from my house. I have yet to hike the Western Trail to the ice caves.

The couple running the salmon shack near my place of work say I had better go this year."

"Next year they won't be here."

I plan to hump the trail this coming Friday.

5-6 hours.

Alone.

In bear country.

But fuck it.

I am one of the last Neanderthals.

We loved the Ice Age.

Mostly because they were no humans.
