Continental Glacier glacier in the United States

Continental Glacier is in Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests, in the U.S. state of Wyoming and straddles the Continental Divide in the northern Wind River Range. Continental Glacier is in both the Bridger and Fitzpatrick Wildernesses, and is part of the largest grouping of glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains. Continental Glacier is situated at an elevation range of 13,100 to 11,200 feet and forms a nearly unbroken icefield over 3 miles (4.8 km) in length along a high altitude plateau to the north of Downs Mountain. Immediately east of Continental Glacier lies East Torrey Glacier.

Andrews Glacier glacier in Colorado, United States

Andrews Glacier is an alpine glacier in a cirque below Otis Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park in the U.S. state of Colorado. The glacier extends from Andrews Pass at nearly 12,000 to 11,700 feet with some perennial snow extending to Andrews Tarn, a small proglacial lake. When images of the glacier taken in the early 1900s are compared with those of the early 2000s, Andrews Glacier is showing a negative glacier mass balance which indicates the glacier is retreating.
