Day 82, 8/16, Glacier Lake, M-2447, 30mi

It always makes me sad as daylight hours start to get noticeably shorter. There’s not much light by 5:20am and it’s almost dark at 8:30pm. Needless to say we take advantage of all of them!

The Sunrise hiking out of camp.

The view over our campsite.

We had a relaxing mid-morning siesta at the Waptus River.

Here is DV hiking through some thick brush. Tons of huckleberries and thimble berries along the trail.

Some afternoon clouds rolled in and we got spit on just a bit.

We “only” did 6500′ of climbing today. The final decent was through this giant scree field.

After a couple miles we finally hit smooth ground again.

We rolled into camp at 7:45 on the shores of Glacier Lake. Flat campsites were at a premium but we managed to squeeze in.
