Glacier Project update from film crew

The team set out yesterday for the Blanca Lake trailhead outside of Index, Wa. From there, they’ll ascend 2,700 feet into sub-alpine meadows, skirt crystal blue lakes, and continue onto the Columbia Glacier at about 4,700 feet above sea level.

The road to from Index [on US Hwy 2, west side of Stevens Pass] to the Blanca Lake trailhead was washed out a few years ago, making the popular trail nearly inaccessible to day hikers. It’s in great condition now with little more than mud, a few downed trees, and of course steep grades and switchbacks to contend with.
Good luck, team!
