Exit Glacier

From Wikipedia:

Exit Glacier is a glacier derived from the Harding Icefield in the Kenai Mountains of Alaska.
It received its name because it served as the exit for the first recorded crossing of the Harding Icefield in 1968

Here is the nature center where the trail up starts

The trail involves a bit of climbing

With some fantastic views

And some walking on flat ground

Past icy water streams

And finally, up close with the glacier

On the way back I noticed that all the trees were slanting in a direction.. towards east perhaps?

And the familiar ant infestation .. leaves rolled up tight.

There were many lovely wildflowers as well.. but that warrants a separate post.
