Cassiope and Saxifrage and the Place Glacier from Lower Joffre Lakes. # 9467

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2007.01.06
Vantage Point: From Lower Joffre Lakes.

Caption: This shows Cassiope and Saxifrage in the background with the Place Glacier behind from Lower Joffre Lakes.

PhotoDescr: This day trip from Whistler involved a steep skin from the Joffre Lakes up the NW arm of Joffre. We had intended to look at a couloir higher on the arm but due to the difficult and length of the approach ran out of time and skied down the other side of the arm towards Chief Pascall. This route is NOT recommended. The approach from the Chief Pascall drainage is much easier and less time - consuming. If anyone recommends this approach please verbally abuse them.
