Vantage Point: From shore of Arnica Lake

Caption: Part of the Northeast Face of Storm Mountain is the backdrop for Arnica Lake.

PhotoDescr: On the second day of the August Long Weekend 2005 (the first two days of which fell in July), I led a group from a mountain club up the Arnica Lake Trail.

While waiting around for nearly an hour at the Paradise Creek trailhead for someone to augment our numbers, we picked Arnica Lake as our alternative.

Storm Mountain has a complex set of ridges and buttresses, Arnica Lake is at the foot of the juncture of one of the buttresses (left side) of the main north ridge (right side). What may be Storm's dummit can be glimpsed beyond the low point in the cliff wall.
