Mountain Fastness

The prominent rock formations on the ridge in this photo are "horns," that is formations caused by the glaciers cutting away all the rocks surrounding the harder, more resilient ones on the ridge. There are some very famous horns around the world, such as the Matterhorn in Switzerland, but these are unnamed and uncelebrated. About this time of year, this pleasant summer view has been entirely covered with deep snow and ice. But I am sure we will be back again to see the flowers next summer.
