Cathedral Crags from Sherbrooke Lake # 697

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1995.09.10
Vantage Point: From the east shoreline of Sherbrooke Lake

Caption: Cathedral Crags (on the right) and an unnamed peak to the northwest as seen from Sherbrooke Lake.

PhotoDescr: Taken on a weekend trip to visit some friends in Field. We decided to go for a quick walk in the morning before having to head home. For anyone interested this is a beautiful area, that is quickly and easily reached. The lake is of historical interest, as it is near the spot this photo was taken that Swiss guide Christian Hasler Jr. and photographer Byron Harmon were attacked by a grizzly bear. Hasler was quite seriously injured in the attack and was never able to completely return to guiding, as he was killed in an accident near his home about a year later. Many of the Swiss guides believed that his death was really a result of the bear attack and not the accident at home. Either way it is an interesting piece of Canadian mountaineering history.
