Thanks, Guido. This was in the early 90s.

I remember taking a group of teens backpacking near the Carbon River when I worked at summer camp. I took a few early morning dips in the Carbon River. Now I know why it was so cold:)

Thank you Byron. Oh man, you got into that cold cold water?
I haven't been up there in 20yrs. Do you know the altitude of the snout of the Carbon Glacier now. It used to be the lowest in the US at about 2400 feet.

I wish I knew the elevation now. I was last there in 2006. The water is still freezing cold by the way. I think that the glacier will be building back this year with the extra snow we have had in the PNW.
