Vantage Point: From the east approach to Kispiox N3

Caption: Mount Thomlinson Group from Kispiox N3, showing peaks of the north Babine Range. Mt Thomlinson is a multi-summit mountain. The true summit is the glaciated peak in the background, just left of centre. The "Front Peak", (as seen from the Kispiox Valley), aka "Dagger Peak", is the rocky peak toward the left margin of the view. Thomlinson S4, with waning glacier, is toward the right of the view. Mt Thomlinson supports three large north-flowing glaciers. One of these is in the valley immediately east of "Front Peak" and feeds Shawilliba Creek, a tributary of the Skeena River. One is further east, bounded on the east by the glacier-clad, N-S ridge in view in this photo. The third flows from a cirque on the NW flank of the main peak, east of (behind) the ridge just mentioned. These latter two glaciers feed Shegisic Creek, a tributary of the Babine River.
