Shauna Balderson, the Fulcrum CFO, took in some expansive views of Mount Rainier, thanks to a hike up to Glacier Basin. Shauna got up-close views of Emmons Glacier, lakes, and other features of the Glacier Basin Loop's diverse landscape.
Along the way, a half-mile side trail heads up Emmons Moraine and offers incredible views of Emmons Glacier, the largest sheet of ice on Rainier, and a milky blue-green glacial lake below. Another mile up, pass the junction with the Burroughs Mountain Trail and continue to the Glacier Basin wilderness camp in a forested glen.
Just beyond the camp, Glacier Basin opens up in all its glory, with wide meadows, a large shimmering tarn, and views up The Mountain of The Wedge and Mount Ruth.
