Glaciers at the head of Luna Creek in Picket Range. North Cascades National Park, Washington. 1960.


Date Taken


North Cascades National Park, Washington. Glaciers at the head of Luna Creek in Picket Range. This complex of ice patches illustrates the difficulty of counting and classifying individual glaciers. A glacier fed by ice avalanches ends in Luna Lake on the left. Avalanches from the large irregular hanging glacier that clings to the cliffs feed the debris-covered ice upslope from another lake (foreground, right center). A small ice patch fed by snow avalanches lies at the base of the cliffs in right center. September 27, 1960. Plate 3-D, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 705-A. 1971.
