Thought this was really cool and could share this article; this is how Antartica looks like without the ice:

http://news.yahoo.com/antarctica-looks-without-ice-124000768.html

And here's a very cool National Geographic slide tool that shows this stuff.

Now we need to use this for Under! Big Grin

That's probably the result of the glacial erosion, huge chunks of rock carried in the glacier will rip up more of the surface as it *slowly* gets dragged along by the ice. It's the same reason places like Scotland are so craggy, since it was once under a glacier.

Must depend on size and number of passes of the glacier, get one big one doing it all and you end up looking like Bismark, North Dakota.

And don't fool yourself, those aren't hills in the background, just shelter belts.

Hey, that looks like the Netherlands. Just less populated and with the wrong colour markings on the road.

What color do they do over there, hopefully something more visible when it snows than white...
