Granite Terraces

High up in the Talkeetna Mountains above Snowbird Glacier recent melting has divided the glacier into separate pieces and exposed terraced steps of granite. These "new" areas of land are extremely unstable as rocks and boulders have been very gently placed on top of each other from slowly melting ice. You must always be prepared for your footing to collapse or shift.
