Ice on the Whitney Glacier
March 27, 2010 - The dirty icefall that flanks the left side of the Whitney Glacier. This section has high rockfall danger and has so much cruddy rock on the surface that we avoided it. There are better ice falls to be had away from the Bolam-Whitney Ridge! The layers in the ice are indicative of the summer accumulation of debris that was then subsequently buried by the next winter snowfall.

This looks like giant, stunning pieces of turquoise embedded in the mountain
