Glacier / PNW

Mt. Rainier glaciers

This post is a start to links and information that I want to keep track of related to glaciers on Mt. Rainier. I will get to join the fantastic Partners in the Parks program again this year, with a plan to hike the Glacier Basin trail. I will also start planning for 2016 field work to contribute to studies of debris cover on the glacier termini.
