New Glacier Forming in California

The remnants of last season’s snow pack.

You’re looking at a picture of glacier as it begins to form. This wall of snow is more than 40 feet (12.2 meters) in height.

Hope Valley is near Kirkwood Ski resort in California. Twenty miles south of Lake Tahoe.

This is how glaciers form. This is also how ice ages begin.

Thanks to Chris Von Duering for this photo.
