Mount Cleveland - Northwest Face # 8357

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1979.07.03
Vantage Point: From near Boulder Pass Trail on Citadel Peaks

Caption: The northwest face of Mount Cleveland with Cleveland Creek draining down into the Waterton Valley at bottom. The normal route up Cleveland is the South ridge of which some is visible as the right skyline. It is possible the ice patches at the bottom of the face are exremely tiny remnants of the glacier that filled the basin at one time, as the USGS shows them on all of their maps but they would have been bigger when the maps were created.

PhotoDescr: Cleveland is the highest point in Glacier National Park and the whole landmass between Crowsnest pass and Marias Pass which is on the SE side of Glacier NP.

I got this picture from the USGS Earth Science Photographic Archive, and they have many that are of interest to the site that I will be uploading. The site has good coverage in Canada from members and we have got some from members in the US, but considering we have branched into the US for the prominence project we need more pictures down there, and up in Alaska of course.
