If weather and trail conditions are favorable, we will hike beyond the Glacier Basin camp. And, on the return, we will do a side trip on the Emmons Moraine trail. All of this might add three miles to the standard Glacier Basin trip (10 miles instead of 7 miles). Elevation gain will be about 2,000 feet.
