Caption: The aquamarine waters of Emma Lake in the foreground, the south ridge above it and pointedly obvious Mount Diadem in the distance.

PhotoDescr: My friends and I were looking to hitch a campboat ride up to the end of Powell Lake and from thence to the alpine environs above but were instead treated to a glorious ride in a Cessna 185.

The Rainbow Peaks, Beartooth, Baldy, Slide, Mt. Alfred, Freda, all of Colin Dionne's great granite frontispieces: it was a who's who in the valleys around Powell River and it simply took the breath away.
