Gorner Glacier, the second largest glacier in the Alps, is particularly thrilling. When the glacier receded it left an entire garden full of glacial potholes above the hamlet of Furi. The potholes were created by melt water that flowed down to the bed of the glacier through crevasses. The remains of a soapstone quarry can also be seen in the glacier garden. The stone from this quarry was crafted into (among other things) crockery and artfully designed stoves, some of which can still be admired in the homes of Upper Valais.
