The 4th International Glaciological Summer School in McCarthy

We're just back from an International Summer School that we organize every other year. 28 graduate students from all over the world came to McCarthy, Alaska, to hear lectures about glaciology, show their research to peers and work on projects. We also did two glacier hikes, and many took the opportunity to see this fantastic landscape from the air.
This is the fourth time we did this, and this was the luckiest we've been with weather: all but one day were blue sky with amazing views of the Kennicott Glacier and the phenomenal Stairway Icefall.
