Glacier glay + see + rrr

Up in the mountains there are rivers of ice called glaciers. They are large chunks of ice that form on land and move slowly down slope or outward in all directions because of their own weight. Most of Alberta's rivers begin in the mountains when water melting from the glaciers trickles down the mountainsides.
