Rhonegletscher with proglacial lake

WI_ch045.jpg

The Rhonegletscher has experienced a dramatic retreat since the maximum of the Little Ice Age in the mid 19th Century, when its terminus was not far from the village of Gletsch. The proglacial lake seen in this 2013 photo started to form around 2006.
