Bow Peak from Bow Lake # 7143

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.08.01
Vantage Point: From Bow Glacier Falls trail

Caption: From the north shoreline of Bow Lake, Bow Peak (L) is visible in the distance. Part of Crowfoot Mountain and the Crowfoot Glacier are on the right and in the center; the summit in the center to the left of the glacier is unofficially known as Bow-Crow.

PhotoDescr: In an area featuring Bow Lake, Bow Pass, Bow Hut, Bow Glacier, Bow Glacier Falls, and the Bow River (the root of all the other names), Bow Peak stands somewhat alone, to the south of the other features. Neither the glacier, nor the hut, nor the pass are on or next to the peak but the river does flow past its foot.

On the third day of the 2005 August long weekend, I led a club group on the relatively short and gentle hike back to the 120 m Bow Glacier Falls.

The trail is a very popular half-day hike from Num-Ti-Jah Lodge. The first part of the route is the same as the access to Bow Hut, the Alpine Club of Canada Hut that is a base for climbing and ski-mountaineering in the Wapta Icefield.
