We took a hike to the foot or face of the glacier yesterday. I was surprised at how much it had retreated since the last time I was there. It’s been retreating about 35 ft a year. It was many miles longer 100 years ago. The glacier comes from the Harding ice field which has about 40 glaciers. The picture may show a small glacier but look at the group of people on the ground next to the side of the ice and they are mighty small.
