    This was truly strenuous and challenging. No where anyone really describes how difficult it is to hike through the snow field. You MUST wear spikes and have with you at least one pole, and be ready to walk very slowly due to steep terrain and soft snow (during summer). At around one mile from the camp you’ll encounter many cravesses, so be carful! I’m not an experienced snow hiker and I took my time, and it took me around 4 hours to hike the snowfield out and back. The positive side about being that slow is that we enjoyed the beautiful lights of the evening before sunset on our way down, and met very few people. Otherwise, be ready to encounter hundreds of people on your way up, most of them clogging the trail. PARKING: we were lucky to get a spot at the first parking lot you encounter driving towards Paradise visitor center. Try to be there before 9:30 am to get one. We saw people parking along the road too, and rangers were fine with it. MOVING TIME (thus without counting breaks): 6 hours. Total time: 9 hours. Finally, I think that hiking the snowfield it’s worth it only if you care about a sense of accomplishment, you want to have this challenge crossed out from your list, or as a workout. It does not add views and enjoyment to your hike.

Glacier Vista
Only tracked the return, which was downhill. After starting the recording, we talked with an older couple for about half an hour before we started down.

Camp Muir attempt
Didn’t reach the camper. We started late so we turned around before it got dark. We turned around at 2000 feet below camp Muir.

Continuous snow after Pebble Creek. I finally understand why everyone dreads the mid-late summer suncups
