|Beautiful lil paradise! Bright green moss on the rock face covered with yellow and pink monkey flower|
This summer was my 5th field season working with the North Cascade Glacier Climate Project, and my second summer taking my own measurements of crevasses in order to observe their changes in accordance with the retreat of the glaciers.
Here are some photos of this field season! Next post I will show my field sketches from this summer!

|Trudging back to camp after a long day of working on the crevasse-ridden Rainbow glacier (behind me)|
|Hike out of one spot - hike into another!|
|Descending the blue ice near the terminus of Easton glacier on Mt. Baker|
|Watercolor and colored pencil sketch of this pool at the terminus of the Iceworm glacier.|
|Mountain goats - I have a neat post about them coming up! These guys are very elusive, you can't get near them usually.|
|Ben using a rope to measure the depth of the snow accumulation from the past winter (crevasse stratigraphy - like tree rings!)|
