Date: 2015.06.27
Vantage Point: summit of Arctomys Peak

Caption: Looking north off the summit of Arctomys at the Lyell Glacier draining into Arctomys Lake and Creek at left, before running off down a lush valley (Valley of Lakes) towards many sparkling lakes and tarns in the far distance beneath the brooding hulks of Erasmus and Mount Amery. Not many people are even aware this valley exists and it's very rarely visited as there are no official trails through it.

PhotoDescr: As part of a four day peakbagging effort on the Lyell Icefields in late June, 2015, we decided to do a west-east traverse of the glacier from the Lyell Hut all the way to the summit of Arctomys Peak on the extreme eastern edge of the icefield.
