Join me while I tell you all of the reasons why it should be protected.
The Mendenhall Glacier and Ice Cave is located in Juneau, Alaska
(Juneau,Alaska is the state capital)
The ice cave does have scientific importance but the one thing we found was about the ancient trees.
Up to 2,350 years old
Still more to figure out if people are willing to study the ancient trees and the ice cave.
“A small, unseen stream tumbles down the slopes of Mt. McGinnis. As it peters out, it disappears under the icy border of the Mendenhall Glacier. The water tunnels its way underneath the glacier, assisted only by the movement of air, forming the "ice caves." And as the years pass, locals, including commercial guide services, continue to equip relatives, friends, and visitors alike with information pertaining to the whereabouts of the caves”

Picture yourself a short drive away from the state capitol, trees at your back, and in front of you, and an enormous ice field flowing down the valley in a glacier that ends at an iceberg dotted-lake's edge. . ~ United States Department of Agriculture
