Capturing beauty on the glaciers

Tomorrow I leave for my 4th field season with the North Cascade Glacier Climate Project! This year I will be doing some of my own measurements - of crevasses! - as a research project for credit at UMaine. I put an image of my project hypothesis below. Also, I can't wait to use my little field sketchbook again - I am bringing up both watercolors and colored pencils and will alternate packing one or the other in at different glaciers. I look forward to posting pictures and sketches when I return on August 17th : >

  1. Awesome post and pictures! My favorite glaciers are the Patagonia glaciers, it was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank you for sharing this with us!

  2. Thank you Mike!
    I go with the North Cascade Glacier Climate Project:
    I've worked on four field seasons now, each summer in August for over 2 weeks, and it is always incredible!
