Peaks Above the Appa Glacier # 11875

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2008.09.29
Vantage Point: Ridge between the two major forks of Rutherford Creek.

Caption: Fred Touche takes a break at a tarn, located high upon ridges above the two major forks of Rutherford Creek.

PhotoDescr: The glacier-laden peak at far right is known on this site (as well as with snowmobilers who frequent the area via the Menzel Memorial Trail) as Appa Peak.
