This is known as the "Anderson River group" of mountains and is a popular climbing area. This view is looking west.

This is a 5 shot pano.

Here's a write-up taken from adventurebc.com:

This area lies between the Fraser Canyon on the Trans-Canada Highway and the Coquihalla Highway, offering two very different types of climbing. The Coquihalla area is best suited for fall climbing and most summits are not technically difficult, but places are challenging. In the northern area, the Anderson River Group offers granitic summits, good access and interesting climbs. Approach this area from the Coquihalla Highway, the Fraser River and the Coldwater River Road. Western and central summits are easily reached from the Anderson River Road.

Anderson River Mountain at 1977 metres (6485 ft.) is the most northwest summit in the Anderson River Group and an easy scramble. The most popular climb is Chamois Peak at 2010 metres (6600 ft.) that ranges from a Class 3-4 to a Class 5.7. Good quality rock climbs can be experienced on the rocky parapets east of Chamois, called Les Cornes. Ibex Peak is the highest in the western cluster reaching a height of 2010 metres (6600 ft.). The north ridge is a Class 3, the southeast ridge has variations up to Class 5.9 and the east ridge reaches a Class 5.10. Steinbok Peak at 1980 metres (6500 ft.) offers climbing that reaches to a Class 5.9 on the northeast buttress.

Tim, this is simply phenomenal!

What a splendid view from up here and what a panorama! You did great to post a link to the big photo...this landscape really deserves to be admired to the very small detail.
The wide view allows an immense perspective, the exposure here is superbly managed and as a result all the colors are charming!
Impressive details and lovely composition.
I'm guessing this is a stitch...how many photos are here?

Anyway, a huge Bravo and TFS

You have done some nice HTML additions which by chance I also did today with my intro. I like the notion of having capability to see the larger photo.

As to your picture. Why would I expect any less of you as a true panoramic and landscape person. Your work is superb in every way. Don't you ever make mistakes?:-)

Points for all things done right...

Beautiful view, nice work.


Breathtaking view! Mountains amaze Texans - mountains with snow on them even more so. ha ha
Absolutely beautiful.

Hi Tim,
A wonderful mountain view. This really makes one feel small again and respect nature. Eventhoug the trees and white snow are not that close to you, they do create a kind of FG interest and give depth to this awesome view. The large version looks really spectacular.
