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.

The dark Proterozoic rocks form the flat-topped bluff on the right and are exposed by the Redlands Fault which lies just above the sharply upturned remnants of the Wingate Sandstone. 1976. Figure 29, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508.

Album caption and index card: The mouth of the Little Colorado River as seen from Cape Solitude, 1,167 meters above the river level. This upstream view of the Colorado River was taken after the completion of Glen Canyon Dam and during a period of low flow when Lake Powell was filling. From this vantage point, the interrupted line of dense vegetation marking the flood level is visible, especially on the left bank. A few shrubs (circle) have become established below the upper fringe of plants. The Little Colorado River enters from the right, and its waters appear turbid in this July view. A dense stand of riparian vegetation lines its left bank. (Altitude is 826 meters). Grand Canyon National Park. Coconino County,...
