Grinnell Glacier 1938-2019

Science Center Objects

USGS employees have taken photos of Grinnell Glacier from this vantage point many times since beginning the Repeat Photography Project in 1997.  Each successive photo has shown the glacier to be smaller resulting in the growth of Upper Grinnell Lake.
