Moderate routes that visit glaciers in Wind River Range?


Aug 14, 2012
I think I'm pretty settled on a route next year that takes me and my group from Big Sandy, up toward Pyramid Lake and a day hike visit to East Fork/Desolation Valley, then back south and up Washakie Creek, over Texas Pass into the Cirque, and finally out over Jackass Pass and back to the trail head.

However, I'm curious about the many glaciers that state the northern range contains. My interest lies mainly in pondering yet ANOTHER trip to WY sometime in the future.

I've been looking through Nancy Pallister's book as well as the Falcon guide by Adkinson.

From what I can see, cool looking glaciers like Sourdough glacier / Iceberg Lake are only accessible via long, tough off-trail routes.

Are there any moderate routes that access or offer good views of Wind RIver Glaciers?
