Alaska cotton grass and an alpine tarn photo, Wrangell St. Elias
Wrangell - St. Elias National Park and Preserve
Alaska cotton grass blooms in abundance near this small alpine lake, or tarn, in the Chugach mountains. Glacial moraine dams the side of the lake, and a small unnamed peak with a glacier flowing down it's side sits behind the moraine.
