Meson Peak and Griswold Pass from Mount Steve # 18690

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2019.08.05
Vantage Point: From the summit of Mount Steve, looking northwest

Caption: A telephoto view of Meson Peak and scenic Griswold Pass. Most of the peaks in the background are between the Lord and Tchaikazan Rivers.

PhotoDescr: Taken on the second day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters. From the top of Mount Steve we got a good preview of the Griswold Pass area, which we would visit two days later.

It's interesting to compare the glacial extent in Klaus's photo from 2001, where the glacier reaches almost to the two lakes in the pass at that time it now has retreated a ways up the valley. Perhaps in another decade the glacier will not be visible from Steve.

Many of the peaks in the background are higher than anything around the area we visited; Beehive is the highest visible at 3013 m.
