Nice job in the comparisons of 1934 to now! I visited Glacier this year and heard a talk by one of the rangers about the receding glaciers. Scary stuff. Nice to see it aptly displayed on SP. Thanks!

Re: Excellent!

Thanks for the compliment, Aaron. I've wanted to go up there and try to match some of those old photos for years and finally had a chance to do it. The weather could have been better but for the time of year wasn't too bad.

I went up to the face of the peak and that is clearly a remnant glacier at the base.

Still going through the archives - might find some more pics.

Best regards,
