Climate change and the melting of the Lewis Glacier on Mount Kenya.
The flame line shows the Lewis Glacier’s location in 1987.
The glacier has since receded about 120m. The pond is called the Curling Pond. In 1987 it’s surface was 15m higher than presently and the back wall of the pond was a tall wall of ice – the glacier’s snout.
The rounded peak is Point Thomson.
