A military mule train carrying mostly fuel cans working its way up the glacier. Each mule carries 4 cans with five gallons of fuel each.

Our mules in the distance on the other side. (Look across the stream just above our heads to the tiny dots on the trail)

Maybe a species of tansy?

Or Ajania fruticulosa?
