Hiking Exit Glacier

Trying to hike Exit


IMG_2946_crop.jpgDay 10

We'd planned to hike Exit Glacier today out to the Harding Ice Field, a strenuous 3.7 mile hike. Unfortunately it started raining last night so hiking was not a great option then at the rangers station we learned that the trail was still full of deep snow. We decided to just hike to the edge of the glacier.

The hike was mostly easy, kids ran part of the way. We took the scenic route leading out to the river, crossing a couple of times over logs. Kids got to feel the glacial waters, very cold!

We were standing by the glacier when Elias noticed a bear near the top. We watched the bear cross the top of the glacier, good thing it wasn't close to smell our smoked salmon we were eating.

We have renamed ourselves the Bear Family, as Christabel put it; “we like salmon and are blobs like the bears”.
