Glacier-terminal-moraine-72204.jpg
Athabaska Glacier, terminal moraine,  Columbia Ice Fields, Jasper National Park. A terminal moraine is the debris the glacier scrapes out of the mountain and accumulates at the toe of the glacier.  The blue of the ice is because it is so compact due to pressure from years of compacting. When the glacier recedes a lake often remains behind the moraine which has become a dam.
