These fire lines I have drawn with a pyrograph indicate where the front of the rapidly disappearing Lewis Glacier on Mount Kenya was at various times in the recent past.
In the distance, a harvest moon lights the doomed glacier remnant; the gap between the fire and ice represents the relentless melting.
Relying on old maps and modern GPS I have made a stratified history of the glacier’s retreat.
