Carbon Glacier Spring 2019

The carbon glacier was not my intention for the very first hike of the season. The hike Eric, Andrew and I had discussed was Mowich Lake to Mystic Lake, a 23 mile journey around Mt. Rainier National Park. This was in the middle of may and little did I know the snow was a ways off from melting and the road to that trailhead was closed. I learned this while buying hiking boots and socks at REI, a customer had overhead my hiking plans and chimed in to reveal the cracks in my plan. He suggested Green lake which was accessed via the carbon glacier trail head. I ended up calling the ranger station and asked what his thoughts were and it was decided carbon glacier was the best spot.
