Larry Johnston shares his family's home movies of Ivan the gorilla from the 1960s. Check out Ivan as a baby. The world-famous gorilla lived with the Johnstons for three years, until he was 60 pounds and proved too big and powerful to remain in the home. He was moved to Tacoma's B&I shopping center, where he lived from 1967 to 1994. Ivan died in August 2012 at Zoo Atlanta.

This 65-frame time lapse video comprises the 7:00 am view of the Emmons and Winthrop Glaciers from Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - Monday, September 11, 2017 from the Camp Schurman webcam. (Note that there are several frames during this time that are missing). The time lapse reveals many interesting features of the glacier, including opening and closing crevasses, zones of different speeds on each glacier, melting of the latest year's winter snow accumulation, rock falls, avalanches, and many more. It is through time lapse videos like this that we can truly see the dynamic nature of glaciers as rivers of ice.
