Timberline glacier

Timberline was a glacier near the tree line on the south side of Mt. Jefferson. While not named on post World War II maps, an ice body is denoted on U.S.G.S. maps with an end moraine at its terminus. This region is now ice and snow free, meaning the glacier has disappeared sometime since 1949 when the last photographs were taken to make maps of Mt. Jefferson glaciers.
