Notes

Consolation Lake is set beneath imposing Bident Mountain and Mount Quadra, both in excess of 10,000 ft, on the lovely meadow, dotted with conifers and flanked by high cliffs and scree slopes. The lake is set in a dramatic ring of high peaks: to the left, the pointed summit of Mount Bell, rising above the lower flanks of Panorama Ridge; the magnificent snow-capped peaks of Quadra and Bident; and Mount Babel to the right. Behind to the north is imperious Mount Temple, its massive bulk completing a wonderful mountain panorama.
