Details

Arapahoe Glacier is the most southern glacier in the Rocky Mountain and it is melting. There is not much left of the glacier which is surrounded by high mountain peaks and alpine tundra, but it's


destination is a reward and a good turnaround point. We will follow a clear trail for two miles in the woods then as it rises above timberline along the boundary of the Boulder watershed area, and then up the northern flank of Caribou Peak
