Gusty Peak and Chester Lake # 2627

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2002.08.18
Vantage Point: From Chester Lakeshore

Caption: From the southwest shoreline of Chester Lake, unofficially named Gusty Peak stands out against a deep blue August sky.

PhotoDescr: According to Alan Kane's classic guidebook, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies, Gusty Peak was given its name by the first ascent party of Alpine Club of Canada members from Calgary in 1972, reflecting the high winds they experienced. Ringing in at an even 3000 m elevation, the peak is considered an easy scramble. The route follows the far shoreline of Chester Lake and then up to the valley behind the forested ridge in the center. From there on it is not visible from this viewpoint.
