Middle Palisades Glacier is the southernmost glacier in North America and I can drive to this viewpoint in about 3 hours from my home in Southern California. The United States has some unbelievable landscapes and you can reach many of them in your car, hiking miles into the wilderness is not always required. You can park about 20 feet from where you set up your tripod for this image. At the foot of this scene there is a small reflection pond that, if the wind cooperates, provides a perfect mirror of the scene here.
