Okay, more like walking on glacier!
On Friday we took a 2.5-3 mile hike out to the West side of the Mendenhall Glacier. We got to a fork that pointed to the left for "West Glacier trail" and to the right for "Unmaintained, hazardous trail". Of course we took the latter. Don't worry, there were 5 of us! Besides, it was just a little overgrown and had some rocks to climb over - not bad at all and had some really pretty lookout points:
Here's what the trail brought us to:
This is our friend Sam climbing up to this awesome arch in the glacier. It was kind of hard to walk on, despite the many crevices seen below so Sam got some mud and slapped it down in front of him for some traction.
I just made Devin give me his hiking poles because he was smart and brought his awesome waterproof shoe covers :)
There was also a beautiful view of the Mendenhall Lake and Nugget Falls from the glacier.
We've been making some great use of our days off!
p.s. We got called to be Sunbeam teachers...Devin is so excited.Pin It
