Palisade Glacier, John Muir Wilderness in the Sierra Nevada California
California
Palisade Glacier is on the Palisades' northern side. In the 1970's when I first visited it, it was larger and the lake was smaller. Global warming has reduced the glacier size considerably to what you see now. The photo taken in August 2018 during a period of many fires in California because of climate change. The smoke haze is becoming a normal sight in the Sierra longer summers. A 8 mile hike with 4,000 feet of elevation trail becoming rough boulder hop will take you to this spot.
