Mount Gillespie and the migrating lake # 18924

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2020.07.26
Vantage Point: S slopes of Seed Peak

Caption: Mount Gillespie and the lake in the basin south of Seed Peak

PhotoDescr: The photo was taken on our climb of Seed Peak. Already on the previous afternoon I had hiked to the base of the south ridge, where the 1:50000 map shows a stream flowing out of a lake that does not exist anymore. See also photo by Jason Sadowski Mount Gillespie and the Basin Below 2 which shows the lake at higher elevation further west. The lake probably drained west as shown on the map when the glacier filled the whole basin.
