Description

This glacier is tucked into a high bowl and sees very little movement. Like a giant ice bowl it remains in the shadow much of the day and most of the summer. There are few indicators that its perimeter has changed much in recent years. Although it is small it will most likely last longer than most in Glacier National Park. It is easily accessed and viewable from the Siyeh Junction Trail.
