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

GRAND CANYON, AZ - All the gear packs up into the trailer and we're off. We've all submitted applications for another permit to do the trip again. Hopefully it won't take another 14 years like it did for this permit.
