Photograph depicts Anderson Lake, on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. Anderson Lake is located approximately 25 miles west of Lillooet, British Columbia. It is fed by the Gates river and drained by the Seton River.
Placid water surface; two mountains converging into valley; rocky and forested shoreline; peaked mountain in middle of image, rising above lake; reflection of mountain in water.
Jagged shaped mountain with extensive shale deposits at bottom; partially white faced on left side of mountain (image is extremely high contrast, making it difficult to distinguish whether white is snow or merely lighter patch of dirt and rock).
Photograph depicts Abbot Pass. Abbot Pass is a col in the Continental Divide between Banff and Yoho National Parks. It is located at an altitude of 2,925 metres (9,598 feet) and about 1,372 metres (4,500 feet) above Lake Louise. Abbot Pass was named in honour of Philip Stanley Abbot, who became the first mountaineering fatality in the Canadian Rockies when he fell to his death in 1896 while attempting to climb Mount Lefroy.
Landscape shows difficult, rocky mountain terrain with partial snow cover.
