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.
In bear country.
But fuck it.
I am one of the last Neanderthals.
We loved the Ice Age.
Mostly because they were no humans.
