18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Ice Cave in Washington State

A climb to reach the alpine meadows where the Ice Cave exists. It is not part of a glacier but grows with the winter snow and shrinks in the summer and parts will collapse. But meadow. You also pass "train sheds", built to protect them from avalanches. Tracks were moved two times so the sheds had their limitations.
