A nunatak is an isolated peak of rock projecting above a surface of inland ice or snow. I did not even know that they existed prior to a flight over the Kenai Peninsula to explore its rocky and ice-filled interior. The winds had blown a pattern of snow around the Nunatak, adding intrigue to this formation. That the ice field was so thick it was covering potentially the peak of a mountain, reducing it to a glimpse of rock in a vast field of snow was amazing to contemplate.
