Exit Glacier as seen from the road to the glacier trailhead.
One of the streams along the trail next to Exit Glacier.
Along the road to the trailhead and up to the toe of the glacier, signs like these show where the glacier used to reach to, in this case, in 1926 the glacier came all the way down to here.
Lupine flowers along the trail.
Lupine flowers and stream.
A good way up along the trail along the glacier.
Cresting onto the Harding Icefield plateau.
An impressive stack of crevasses.
Out of the plants and onto the rocks.
Being so far north, the sun takes its sweet time to set over the Harding Icefield.
Pretty sweet ridge.
Hardy plants making it work in the alpine zone.
A long red streak behind the far mountain ridges.
This is the extent of the sunset for tonight.
More sunrise with a hint of shelter.
New light on the crevasses.
The braided river way down in the valley catches and reflects the golden glow of the sunrise.
Great reds mixed with the green. Looming clouds right on the peaks across the valley.
The toe of the glacier.
A close look at the toe of the glacier.
Looking up the glacier. I really wanted to go exploring in that little cave!
