Only a sheet of ice protects you from falling 1000 feet down this Abyss
Photographer Aaron Huey, who is on assignment for National Geographic, recently shared a picture of a frighteningly deep hole on the Lower Ruth Glacier. The only thing stopping people from plummeting down the 1000 feet drop into the ground is a sheet of ice. One crack, though.

Approaching the end of my early twenties, I know I have a bad ass mother when I’m bitching about something, and she says “you just need a fuck buddy for now… But I’m your mother so I never said that.”

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.
