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.


A Different Angle

Taken from the same location as “Water Under the Bridge” in my last post. This picture is of the view looking 90 degrees to the left and level with the horizon where the last one was looking down on the water. It was taken about 10 minutes later, same conditions.
