Goessnitz glacier lake

in August 1996 there was this glacier lake at the end of the stone-covered Goessnitz glacier, situated in upper Goessnitz valley above Elberfelder hut

Great photos. I'd love to take a kayak up there and poke around under the tallus and glacier.

Beautiful photo.

This ilustrates well what can lie beneath a thin vaneer of talus. Is this a traditional glacier transitioning to a rock glacier?

Re: Beautiful photo.

I think it is still a traditional glacier (though not much moving) that consists mainly of ice, but it is almost fully covered with stones.

But I know that there are also rock glaciers (german term: "Blockgletscher") in the Hohe Tauern, that consist mainly of frozen stones.
