A hiker peers into a massive moulin on Snowbird Glacier, in the Talkeetna Mountains of Alaska

A moulin (or glacier mill) is a roughly circular, vertical (or nearly vertical) well-like shaft formed where a surface meltstream exploits a weakness in the ice. The term is derived from the French word for mill.[1]
