Way down in the southeast corner of the park the Ohanapecosh River flows out of the inactive Ohanapecosh Glacier. Inactive glaciers are no longer moving or calving, just big lumps (real big) of ice slowly melting away. As they can be many hundreds of feet thick they can be around for quite a long time. More on this in a later post.
People think I’m old, but I’m standing in front of a very old slice of Douglas Fir. I’m pointing to the tree rings that correspond to a very important event in American History.
In a couple of million years I imagine this will be a slot canyon in some ancient desert.
