Grinnell Glacier

Grinnell Glacier

A hiker enjoys the view at the Grinnell Glacier.

The hike to the Grinnell Glacier (elevation 6500′) is strenuous, but worth it. It was about 710 acres in 1850 at the end of the little ice age and has been retreating ever since. It’s now something less than 200 acres.
