I was a bit apprehensive heading to Taku after last year's rainy field season, but it turned out fine. There was some snow on the glacier; not a lot, but enough to work with. We did have some rain, but also several sunny days and some snow. At some times rain, snow, and sunshine occurred simultaneously, in typical Southeast Alaska fashion.
On the flight out we had a nice view of the glacier, which is still advancing pretty healthily.
My colleague Andy Aschwanden took some really nice pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ak64north/albums/72157666219362885
