Water so clear, that walking on the ice above makes it appear to be walking on water.
This is about as close as mere mortals will come to walking on water.
A new YouTube video described as being taken in the High Tatras Mountains in Slovakia is going viral, with the stunning footage showing two hikers walking on ice that is so crystal clear that it appears they are walking on the surface of a still lake.
Howdy. I've been hiking most of my life. I spent my young boyhood hiking up and down the mountains in Hell's Canyon, bordering Oregon & Idaho with my father. He taught me important wilderness skills that I have passed on to my own sons. Since growing up in Idaho and hiking all over the Sawtooth and Selway wilderness areas, I have since hiked in the Andes and several trips diving and hiking in Antarctica, including the "Footsteps of Shackleton" expedition. I was also active in National Ski Patrol for 15 years, including Avalanche control and rescue. Since then I have become a Doctor of Trauma & Orthopaedics at Oxford England with an interest in Expedition Medicine.
My son, Jeremy is now the main hiker in the family with weekend hikes throughout the summer and will share his adventures.
