Great view. Termination dust is down the hill to Mid-Way.  

 

You are North of the road, but how far back towards the creek?

What is termination dust? Sounds nuclear.

An old Alaskan term for early snows on the peaks.  'Termination' of Summer.  An alternate meaning: early snow on the peaks time to 'terminate' the job for the winter.  

 
One of the most memorable sights for me after 13 years up there is; a bluebird day with termination dust on the peaks, red fireweed in the Alpine, green spruces in the valleys.

Stranger,

You have been here before !!

We are north of Glacier Creek and just barely east of it.

Meant to say we are north of the main road and just barely east of the bridge .

Been there, A LOT.  All long long ago.  Lived in a couple different cabins down there.

Started skiing there before they trimmed Waterfall in the Bowl, and there was only one chair.
 
A marvelous mountain.  There was talk at one time about putting a tram or Gondi up Max's Mountain; that still being discussed?
