It took some time for each of us to get our perfect summit jump shot. When a flurry of helicopters ducked down into the canyon, we took a break from jumping and kept our arms by our sides.I read that this could be an amazing hike if you don't do anything silly. I knew what that meant once I saw the crevasses in the glacier. They were dark and deep. We heard rock slides often. It was easy to tell how far stretched this glacier was with a large portion of it lightly covered in the fallen rock. Creeks ran through it and those looked dark and deep too.
- Distance-wise, this hike amounted to being short.
- Elevation-wise, this hike could be considered to have moderate accumulation.
- Scenery-wise, this hike rates up there! Very high.
- Lunch-wise, this hike affords a loooong one! That is if you had a day like we did. The sky was clear blue, the sun was bright, my thermometer registered 27 degrees and not even a breeze was to be felt. We leisurely lingered for two hours!
