GigaPan w/Canon SD850


There are just dozens of these glacial features in the mountains near Big Sky - this inactive feature flowed (once) off the eastern side of Lone Mountain. Rock glaciers are thought to form when debris from the mountainsides mixes with ice and flows downhill, much like a more ice-rich glacier does.

The topography of the rock glacier creates natural terrain obstacles for skiers (this is a freestyle slope during the ski season).
