One comment on “Pine Creek backpack

  1. Along that Harden Lake loop hike, there’s an awesome but unassuming spot by the trail. It’s a downhill section near the rim of the GCotT, with a low ridge next to the trail. Most hikers probably just walk on by it without noticing (that’s why I call it “unassuming”). But it’s a ridge of mixed up dirt and boulders — a moraine. And it’s parallel to the GCotT, so it’s a lateral moraine. My conclusion was that it was from the glacier that carved that canyon. That’s when it gets awesome — you can look down the 4000 feet and see how thick that glacier must have been.
