My team getting ready to step across a crevasse.
|We started walking from our camp across the frozen snow and ice. There were big cracks in the ice that we had to step across. The cracks are made when the ice moves. The cracks are called crevasses. They can be be very deep. Sometimes you cannot see the bottom. I was very careful not to fall into a crevasse. We always tied a rope to each other so if we fell into a crevasse one of our teammates could pull us out.|
