We took the full-day Root Glacier hike on June 18th, 2012 and had Rachel as our guide. We had a small group (5 people including the guide) and were able to do ALOT of exploring on the glacier. We had excellent weather and saw rivers, moulins, blue pools, waterfalls and incredible ice caves, all on the glacier itself. Ate lunch next to a large blue pool while another group set up to ice climb the wall next to the pool. Made it across the glacier to Donaho falls, which was incredible. Stopped there and Rachel made us hot chocolate and tea! This is truly a full day trip, and you get the full day out on the glacier. Rachel was an excellent guide - knowledgeable about geology, glaciers and the local area, safety-conscious, and fun. You could tell she genuinely enjoyed what she was doing, and that rubbed off on the group. If you have only one day in McCarthy/Kennicott or Chitina, drive the road or fly in and do a trip with St. Elias Alpine Guides!
