Stanza Peak and wildflowers from east of Nichols Creek # 18766

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2019.08.06
Vantage Point: From just east of Nichols Creek, looking SE

Caption: The summit of Stanza is the rocky cliff above the glacier in the left background. Mount Ethelweard is visible in the far right background.

PhotoDescr: Taken on the third day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters area. We got this scenic view just after recrossing Nichols Creek, returning from Glacier View Lake. The hillside just east of the creek was absolutely carpeted with paintbrush.

We would summit Stanza by following the ridgeline from left to right two days later.

This photo is from a similar, but lower, vantage as this one by Cody Hallett in 2015.
