Not A Glacier
  -    -  Not A Glacier

These are photographs of a huge pile of halite that sits along the banks of the Hudson River in South Troy,NY and gets replenished every summer in preparation for the impending winter to get rid of the ice on the roads. A friend of mine spotted how they cut the pile differently this year and how in ways it mimicked a glacier sitting in the city. The residents have long complained about this pile when it’s uncovered as dust from the salt on windy days gets blown around around the community and I can only imagine how much of it leeches into the river. Funny how this pile of halite resembles the ice of a glacier in some way, but that we harness it’s agency to melt it.
