South Sister glacier discovery

Post by Chip Down » April 7th, 2021, 5:03 pm

KOIN reports "New glacier found on Oregon's South Sister"
More accurately, Willamette Week says "A Previously Undiscovered Glacier Has Been Found on South Sister".

The glacier is on the north side in a cirque west of the north ridge. Apparently it went unnoticed because it's remote and dirty.
