Langille Glacier

Langille is a small glacier on the north side of Mt. Hood. It is situated in between the much larger Coe and Eliot Glaciers. While it is small, it still shows evidence of ice flow with extensive crevasses. It is likely that it existed because of diversion of ice from both Coe and Eliot Glaciers; the glacier still exhibits its own unique accumulation zone and is no longer connected to Eliot Glacier.
