Ice in June?
Some of the water runnels still had big chunks of ice in them on our visit on June 20. I bet this place is really beautiful with snow and ice in winter.

initial formation of a tectonic cave!
There's some places where the rocks fail to
heat up (as much) during the day, and the
snow lingers on them. Nice shot, Jeremy!!!

Huh! Who knew? The rock, as you can tell, has quite a bit of air in it and is not very dense, so it is well-insulated from the other rocks that do heat up in the sun. Pretty interesting! Thanks for the info! I learned something today. :)

Yeah! A lot of folks think Summitpost exists
solely for entertainment or beautiful nature
shots, but the story of the Earth is TOLD by
looking at its ROCKS. I learned something, too!

Actually, this could be the primary stages in
the formation of a secondary or talus cave.
An example is the Bear Gulch Cave in central California, where water has seeped into
volcanic rocks. Outstanding photo!!
