The forefield of Vadret da Roseg and the surroundings of glacial lake Lej da Vadret are particularly rich in alpine flowers.

Wind has carried these ice blocks from the calving front at the southern end of Lej da Vadret towards its northern one where they get stranded (July 2005).
Calving front of Vadret da Roseg into Lej da Vadret in July 2005. During the following few years the glacier will lose contact with the lake due to continued recession.
After a major calving event icebergs and bergy bits float away from the glacier tongue (July 2005).
