fantastic up-close glacier views. Incredible flowers! Watch out at some of the stream crossings if water is high. Take a camera.

“Spectacular lunch on the glacier's rim”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This was an amazing walk. It takes some time couple of hours but well forth the trek. We crossed snow, a few fast rivers with big stones to walk over and when we made it to the glacier's rim it was like having lunch on the sides of an enormous cereal bowl! We could see people walking down in the glacier and they looked like little ants. Beautiful way to spend a day and get your blood pumping!
