East Bend glacier

East Bend glacier is the east facing part of the glacier complex called Bend Glacier on the north and east side of Broken Top. In the 1950s, the U.S.G.S. mapped three glaciers as one glacier: Bend Glacier. In reality, these were three separate ice masses. The eastern glacier, called informally East Bend glacier, deposited a large moraine that dams up No-Name lake, another informal name. East Bend is now almost completely gone with only a small remnant patch of stagnant ice.
