The 0.7 mile hike to St. Mary's Glacier

We drove with Evan and Sean to Fort Collins on Saturday to pick up David, then drove on the back roads stopping in Boulder for lunch, to Saint Mary's Glacier. I think the altitude is around 10,000 feet and we certainly felt it during the 0.7 mile climb from the road to the foot of the glacier.
