Glacier in Alaska

While I was visiting Waterton Lakes National Park and Glacier National Park, I was reminded of what glaciers really look like when they are alive and active. This is a photo I took last year in Alaska. I suppose that the mountains in Montana and the southern part of Canada probably looked like this a few thousand or more years ago. When I look out the window here in Utah, I image what the Wasatch Mountains would have looked like if they still had the the huge glaciers that formed the cirques and canyons I can see today. Of course, I would probably be under water since at that time the whole valley was filled with the huge Lake Bonneville.
