The pictures below are from the Illecillewaet Campground and taken in summer 2009. These pictures are taken from the Perley Rock hike and after several years of hiking the Illecillewaet, this was the best hike yet. (You can see Abbott Ridge in some of the photos, and it is lower than us.
Right up to the glacier and a nice glacial lake ( verrryyy cold).

There are two national park campgrounds located within Rogers Pass National Historic Site, adjacent to our major historic site trails. Illecillewaet Campground has 60 campsites and is located just a few minutes walk from the 1885 Self-guiding Trail and Glacier House Self-guiding Trail. Loop Brook Campground with 20 campsites, is circled by the Loop Brook Self-guiding Trail. Both campgrounds are located just a few kilometres west of the summit of Rogers Pass. The campgrounds operate from late June to September, on a first come-first served basis. For more information, see the Glacier National Park website .
