Exit Glacier on July 31

After a stop for some mechanical updates I was ready to travel again. Next stop was the Exit Glacier of the Kenai Fjord National Park. I had a few good views of the Exit Glacier before being dropped of at yet another parking lot. Seems like I spend most of my time in either a campground or parking lot.

Sandy and Jim enjoyed a 3 mile hike to the base of Exit Glacier. It was hard for them to believe how much this glacier has retreated in our lifetime. It is guessed that at this rate of retreating the glacier will hardly be visible on this particular trail in 20 years, unless there is an ice age again.

Then it was back to Stoney Creek for a few chores as tomorrow we leave for Ninilchik. Jim and Sandy will be attending Salmonstock, which is a music festival. The mission of Renewable Resources Foundation is to celebrate resources like wild salmon and this festival is part of that celebration.

Enjoy the pictures,
