Weekly Photo Challenge: Layered

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes snow falls so high in the mountains that it never melts, even in the summer. Over time, layer upon layer, the snow pack builds. Soon the weight of the snow in the upper layers presses down on the layers beneath. Eventually some of the layers morph into solid ice allowing the whole thing to slide. That’s when you have a glacier! Alaska is full of them, each one different and magnificent!
