Date: 2015.03.28
Vantage Point: Skookum Dam

Caption: Kalkalilh Caldera is the wooded hump in the background above the work party.

PhotoDescr: Text by Paul Kubik: We needed some place names in the area as we work our way up towards the park boundary from Skookum Dam. The BCMC is reestablishing the ski route into Mamquam from the head of roads up Skookum Creek.
