Situated in the Rocky Mountains near Idaho Springs, Colorado lies St. Mary's Glacier at an elevation of just under 11,000 feet. My youngest daughter, Danielle, and her two boys, Clay and Jared, hiked to it the other day and then sent me these photos. Danielle, a veteran hiker of 14,000 peaks, called this a "wimpy hike." Just my style.
Not much of a glacier but, of course, it's had a whole summer to melt away the ice. Just think what it must be like in the springtime.
