Logan Pass, looking south (1/3)

List item

This is from Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, facing south. The last time I shared this view, it was in the middle of winter and the trees in the foreground were totally buried in snow. Those trees are at least 15-20 feet tall, which gives a good idea of how deep the snow gets. This location is at an altitude of 6646 feet, and yes, that is snow that can be seen at the bottom of the ridges in the background. The snow almost never melts here, owing to the amount of yearly snowfall, the altitude, and the angle that sunlight hits the ground.

Many of the glaciers in Glacier National Park have been growing larger for the past several years of increased yearly snowfall, as has been happening elsewhere, such as in Alaska.
