This photograph shows the "line" between the Grinnell Glacier
and Upper Grinnell Lake. Additionally, you can also see the Salamander
Glacier. This glacier was actually part of the Grinnell Glacier many
years ago. However, the rapid meltiing of the Grinnell Glacier Trail
caused the glacier to split - so instead of one big glacier you now have
two smaller ones. Additionally, if you look closely at the Salamander
Glacier you can see some "bare" spots forming in the middle
of parts of it. I suspect the Salamander Glacier, despite better protection
from the sun, will probably completely melt away before the Grinnell
Glacier does due to its smaller size.
