Postcard of the Week: Rock Glacier Rock Cairn

Rock Glaciers: moving masses of rocks (instead of ice) slowly descending a mountain.

The Rock Glacier Trail is a short and informative interpretive walk in the Kluane National Park and Reserve. The trail starts along a boardwalk and moderately climbs to views of Dezadeash Lake and the surrounding valley.
