Snow Mountains

The wind was blowing clouds of snow off of the mountain and made it look like a fog. To the left in the image is a glacial cirque. This is a bowl-shaped valley where an historic glacier had its origin. The piles of snow in this cirque are disputedly either a remnant of a glacier or actually still a glacier. Glaciers generally have been retreating or disappearing. This is the east side of Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Range of Utah.
