Grinnell Glacier, circa 1888-2016

Science Center Objects

This historic image is one of the oldest images re-photographed among the collection.  The massive wall of ice that constituted the terminus of Grinnell Glacier has receded beyond view from this point.  Each summer thousands of hikers take the well-worn trail to be rewarded with the sight of the remnant Grinnell Glacier and Upper Grinnell Lake.
