The Alps May 27, 2012
The Jungfrau and Aletsch regions of the Alps are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are the most glaciated region of the Alps and they contain Europes largest glacier. The site is an exceptional example of plate tectonics at work and then erosion on on top of that as the glaciers are presently receding. The Aletsch Glacier is the longest in Europe, snaking it's way around the mountains forming characteristic U-Valleys. The peaks are interesting in that one side is a sheer face and the other side is gently sloping downwards. Abundant flora and fauna are located in this section of the Alps.
