West Bend glacier

West Bend glacier is the western 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, with the westernmost glacier, informally called West Bend, now gone.
