Hike to Easton Glacier: A Mt. Baker Retreating Glacier
Sunday 15 September 2013, 08:00am - 06:00pm

Want a firsthand view of what glacial recession means? Hike with Dr. Doug Clark, WWU Geology professor and glacial expert, to a research monitoring site in a long-term study of glacial response to climate changes.  The hike to the foot of Easton Glacier on the south side of Mount Baker begins beyond Baker Lake at Schreiber Meadow trailhead and is 3 miles one way with a 1,600' elevation gain. Rewarding views and evolving landscapes add to fascinating facts about the areas' geologic history and recent changes. Open to confident hikers; some off-trail hiking across loose glacial rubble at the glacier. Limited to 25. Register with Chris at 778-8960, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
