Have the glaciers retreated a lot since then or i imagining things? I'd like to see a current photo for comparison.

Hopefully the shrund is passable. A month ago another party in Boston Basin said it was getting quite difficult.

I took the liberty of stitching the two pictures together and it is clear that the glacier has retreated quite a bit. Note that the photos were taken from the same spot 40 years apart!

...very interesting, indeed!  Yep glaciers have been geeting smaller almost each decade since.  In fact, Whitehorse Mtn. glaciers are the smallest I've seen them ever...I was born in the 1950s.  And the Three Fngers glaciers as well.  Sign of the times I guess.  At any rate, great to see the posts.
