Cream Lake in late August # 17675

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2015.08.25
Vantage Point: From the moraine below Mount Septimus, looking northwest

Caption: Cream Lake, with peaks above Bottle Lake behind. Mount McBride is the highest point in the background, with Mount Phillips in front and to the right.

PhotoDescr: Taken on a 3-day trip to the Bedwell Lake area. Cream Lake is an easy hike from Bedwell Lake, and is arguably a nicer setting, below Mount Septimus. While camping is discouraged in this area, one could do so on the creek outwash without disturbing the alpine meadows.

The rocks in the foreground are part of the moraine of the glacier below the west side of Septimus, which has retreated significantly.
