Snows of the Past

Snow Patch Tunnel

Seasons greetings,

and many thanks to all followers and supporters of HeritageLandscapeCreativity.

The tunnel above runs beneath ten meters of snow forming part of the Juvfonna snow patch in Norway.  Research has shown this deep snow has remained preserved, largely unmelted, for at least three thousand years: until in recent years where it has been melting more rapidly and revealing artefacts preserved within…!

It located not far from the highest peak in Norway, Galdhøpiggen (2469 m), and is within the Mímisbrunnr Klimapark 2469.
