Melting glaciers reveal secrets. Lets look at the Andean Mountains, Bolivia, La Paz. This is a city where mountain climbers gravitate. The guys eat grilled llama and drink bottles of Pacena beer and talk about the nearly 20,000 foot high mountain called the Huayna Potosi, that is the landscape of La Paz. Some peaks are higher than the Alps and the Rockies. This is also a range that seemed to be the place where countless plane crashes occurred throughout the years.
This sounds like the stuff out of a fiction adventure novel. No, this is real. Things are being discovered every day on mountain ice slopes. The bodies that are emerging were mummified naturally, with extreme cold and dry air performing the work that resins and oils did for the ancient Egyptians and other cultures. The discoveries are helping to solve decades old mysteries and the finds could go on for a long time. Some discoveries are personal, allowing families closure after years of mourning loved ones who appeared to have vanished.
