Meeting of the Glaciers

A small, vigorous glacier coming down Mill D South Fork met the larger sluggish glacier from the main canyon and the two wedged together and stagnated at this point.

The low smooth hill over your left shoulder, is a terminal moraine made up of rock debris deposited by the glaciers.

The L-shaped canyon above is a typical glaciated valley, contrast this with the V-shaped, stream cut canyon below.
