Sahale Mountain and Doubtful Lake from the South # 18416

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2016.08.13
Vantage Point: From lower Sahale Arm, looking north

Caption: Sahale Mountain is the triangular peak upper left, with Doubtful lake at the lower right. A bit of the ridge heading to Buckner Mountain is visible at the right, above the SE ridge of Sahale.

PhotoDescr: Taken on a daytrip to Cascade Pass and Sahale Arm. While ascending Sahale Arm, we were treated to this fantastic view of the southern slopes of Sahale Mountain, towering above the bowl that holds Doubtful Lake. On most warm days, there is a constant din from the many waterfalls draining the Sahale Glacier.

Of note is the portion of the lake that is shallower due to what I imagine is constant avalanches and rockfall from the cliffs above. Later in the afternoon I ascended to the top of the arm and the toe of the glacier, which is barely visible below the summit.
