South of Kleena Kleene
July 2011
Mount Perkins from Tatla Lake
Mount Perkins
The peak
View to the southeast
One of the glacial lakes
Many mosquitos here, luckily I had my screen tent
Set up camp on the only flat spot, if it rains I`ll get flooded out, but little chance of that.
View from the tent
Desolate, foreboding, silent and beautiful
On top of the world
Glacial lakes at sundown
Evening with moon above the peak

It will be another 30c+ day, so an early rise for the hike up to the viewpoint.
There is a track pushed through the scree to make the journey possible.
The peak in the early sun
Looking southeast from the veiwpoint trail (camp in lower left)
The darker rock above the lake has a black lichen growing on it,
I suspect the lighter rock was covered in glacial ice until the last few years
Plants in the scree, even a spruce this far above the treeline
Interesting lichens
This is a view from south-west-north in early morning
