Ice in the Mountains

Had to share this one -- came across it on the "Glaciers Online" web site.  It's from the Nevado Paron area of the Andes.  Goodness knows what the annual precipitation is here -- there is a great deal of snow accumulating on these peaks and providing ice for the glacier in the foreground.  This is how snow accumulates in the uplands where there is jagged terrain (as in the younger mountain areas of the world) and where annual precipitation is high.
