Black shale and rock, dirty white snow with patches of exposed blueish ice, blue sky, white mist and clouds.  A higher glacier above the black ridge and to the west the first view of the glacier and snow fields leading to the actual pass. It’s a beautiful day and a spectacular view. Elated, we stop to look back down the valley of pinks and greens, soft contours.
