Northern Loop Trail, Part 5 of 6

Skyscraper Peak (left) and Grand Park (the two horizontal brown patches to the right) from Skyscraper Pass.

Vernal Park (across the valley) and Sluiskin Mtn. (right). Elysian Fields is up there beyond Vernal Park.

Our first view of the Winthrop Glacier on this trip. You can't see the ice for the huge load of rocks it is carrying.

A closer view of the Winthrop Glacier dumping some of its load of rocks to form a moraine.

Down close to the snout of the Winthrop Glacier. We need to get around it and up the other side.

A pretty little creek.
