Camping on the Glacier

Camping on the Glacier
This was our overnight camp on the way up to the summit of Mount Baker. We were at about 8000 feet elevation on a relatively level area of Coleman Glacier known as the Football Field. We reached this point at about 4:00 in the afternoon, set up camp, cooked and ate our evening meal, watched the sunset and then turned in for the night. Edward (tan trousers) and I had a warm and comfortable night, but Nate and our guide, Troy (green jacket) were very cold and uncomfortable and did not sleep much. After waking at 4:00 am and making a quick breakfast we set off again at 5:00 am.

Camp looks to be well set up here. In my experience, a good night's rest hinges on the quality of the sleeping bag.
