    That appears to be a cornice. Dangerous as hell in the mountains. Wind blown snow over nothing but an abyss that one can’t see from above but has to know of the drop below from knowledge of the terrain and experience. They often appear as false peaks on mountains that have a steep side slope or vertical or near vertical face on the side that opposite of the predominate winds. They are death traps.

    Other ways snow can deceive. Snow bridges over crevasses in glaciers or rocky scree fields on mountain sides. It takes experience to identify them. That very slight shaded look of the snow that one will not notice unless they are looking for it. Sometimes the snow is thick enough at the edges where it spans the pit below that only at the center where the snow is thinnest does it have that slightly shaded look. Thus, unless one is familiar with the terrain below, it is best to give those shaded patches a wide birth.

    Oh, and it is a good thing to remember that it can be as dangerous to be below a large cornice than as on it.

    Poor doggies, they won’t have enough to eat very soon. This is according to the latest IPCC report: FOOD JUSTICE: Changing what we eat will make or break our planet

    The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change raises the alarm – in no uncertain terms, again – about time running out for humanity to save the planet and ourselves from catastrophic global warming. The food component of the global economy is one of sectors that could hasten progress in keeping global warming to not more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, which would limit the worst impacts of our heating planet.
    The new IPCC publication, Mitigating Climate Change, released on 4 April 2022, includes for the first time in the panel’s 34-year history the impacts of the food system in the global calculus of environmental impacts.
