Olympic Day Three: Blue Glacier and Back

I hardly have words for this part of my trip. Spectacular is a good one. This post has too many pictures, but I couldn't bring myself to cut it down any further.

Blue Glacier! 
Trying to show its steepness

loving it


can anyone identify this scat? serious question. elk? bear? cougar?

note the wooden/rope ladder hanging down the landslide slope — I had to climb up and down that to get to the glacier.

twas a bit nerve-wracking

quite steep 
I learned today that this black slug is an invasive species that threatens the existence of local banana slugs!

yet more cool tree-root formations


fern walk
I liked the shadows here. 

That's Elk Lake, about 5/6ths of the way up to the glacier
pretty glacier water!
