Are ice caves the same as glacier caves? Should you be taking your selfie with them or explore them on your own? Did you know that the PNW has one of the few remaining ice caves inside glaciers  on our back yard volcanos in the entire country? 

Eddy Cartaya, the Indiana Jones of Glacier Caving , TED Talk speaker and  will give you the scoop of the intimate details of these majestic formations. 
Cartaya and his climbing partner, Brent McGregor  explored the frozen caves created in the Sandy Glacier and in 2011, they  identified and explored three caves which they named Snow Dragon, Pure Imagination and Frozen Minotaur. 
As one of the couple of  dozens of glacier cave rescuers in the world, not only does Eddy work with NASA and  is a co-founder of Glacier Cave Explorers he is one of the most esteemed members of Portland Mountain Rescue  with countless rescues under his belt. 
Come and listen to Eddy's fascinating, geek-out worthy stories about a part of the world only a few lucky people get to venture to: the belly of the beast.
