Awesome: I wonder if it is in retreat: as a lot of them seem to be?

I bet if you drilled a hole big enough, you store some really cold beers in that glacier.
Great picture of another beautiful landscape.
....peter:): If these mountains were not in National Parks.....i bet that someone would drill an even bigger hole to put the whole beer factory in it!!! smile.....we take our National Parks very seriously Louis.....thanks for the nice comment on the landscapegrin....petersmile
