Mamquam from Drop Pass # 8519

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2006.05.14
Vantage Point: From Drop Pass

Caption: The Mamquam Massif from Drop Pass (from the north)

PhotoDescr: Mamquam was a companion nearly every day of our recent 8-day McBride traverse. Just when we thought we had finally put it behind us, we'd ascend a new ridge and see ... Mamquam! Nothing against this fine peak, it just gave us a feeling of not getting anywhere.

The Mamquam massif is cool in that it stands on its own as it is bounded by steep river valleys on all sides (nearly 8000' of relief on the east side!).

I thought this view, from Drop Pass, best captured the sense of the massif.
