Sometimes I wonder if there is any rock under these mountains or if they are just piles of snow and ice. Imagine the annual snowfall that maintains a frosty cone like this one. This is at 8500′ in the Chugach so it is very likely that 30+ feet of snow falls here each year.
I am always amazed at the uniqueness of a formation like like this one. This is less than 20 minutes from where I live, and this snow mound looks like this 12 months out of the year … I love Alaska.
