This was our last major trip to Wolverine Glacier for this year. It was quite successful - we were able to remeasure all 22 of the stakes we placed this spring, measured 5 density profiles in the accumulation zone, took another ~25 m long core from our firn process study site, and repaired and downloaded both of our weather stations. Despite mostly rainy weather we did all that in 7 days! I took a few pretty pictures, although I managed to completely miss most of the wildlife. We saw a wolf, a gyrfalcon grabbing a ptarmigan, mountain goats, dall sheep, sandhill cranes, and golden eagles.
