I love the snow covered peaks in the Chugach Mountain Range. This is one of hundreds of no-name ridges in the heart of the Chugach. I took this picture yesterday on the 6th of June and as you can see it is far from summer. My elevation here is only 7000′ but the snow and ice cling to the rock as if it were winter. This ridge is on the North side of the range so it is influenced more by the interior weather patterns than the costal moisture. On the South side of the range, facing Prince William Sound, there are similar ridges that show absolutely no rock as the snow and ice have completely blanketed the area 12 months out of the year. God created something unfathomable when he carved this out, and it’s no wonder we never get tired of looking at it.
