EXIT glacier

riding with a headwind most of the way, finally at mile 7 I saw the prize
entering the park

this is where the glacier ended in 1917 - hella recession
a little bit of glacial education

back in 1998 the glacier came to this sign - 15 years of melting
where those people are is the closest I could get.
 a little disappointing since I had visions of making snow angels in the ice
I thought it would be fun to drink a coconut water on a glacier

the light isn't the best, but there is a little waterfall in the center

where the glacier meets the river with a pleasant view of the valley
pleased to see this push for REUSE at the visitors center

soaked the feet in a creek intersecting the Resurrection River on the way down

a little recap....
