View Original Image at Full Size

Oblique aerial view of the Easton Glacier, Mt. Baker. This view provides a detailed overview of the Easton Glacier (as of 2007) and the glacier trough below it (the forefield) that was occupied during the height of the Little Ice Age (about 150-200 years ago). Note the bedrock outcrops near the glacier terminus, the streamlined, fluted till plain further downvalley, and the well formed lateral moraines on either side of the trough. A modest hike up the center of the trough to the glacier terminus takes a few hours from the trailhead. View to the northeast; photo by John Scurlock (
