PhotoDescr: The Grant MacEwan Mountain Club ("an eating club with a hiking problem") kicked off the 2004 "summer" hiking season with a weekend campout at the Owl Group Camp in Kananaskis Country, an event named the "Owl Prowl and Howl." I volunteered to lead a day hike to Ribbon Lake on the Saturday of the weekend, with Ribbon Lake as our destination. Once we got past Ribbon Falls, we had to work our way up the chain-assisted headwall route, and found the area above still covered in snow and the lake largely frozen over.

The peak at the back of the lake is unnamed, but is part of the ridge between Mount Kidd and Mount Engadine; it forms the west shoulder of Guinn's Pass.
