    Not a named glacier, though there are a number of worn out ones in the area. Just to narrow it down a little, this is west kootenays.

    Not Schroeder Creek, but the road is named after a creek. And, I take back my answer to your previous question... The glaciers in the area are named. You can't see one in the photo, but there is one up there on the other side of the mountain.

    The guy in the previous photo on the left is looking up at this glacier, which also has a name:

    No, but getting warmer. Where the road starts, the bridge that crosses the creek on the main road is worth stopping and taking a look. This isn't the best pic in the world, but the only one I could find. I'm standing on the bridge and looking down at the creek. IMG_2259.JPG

    I really love the way you got those mining bits in the foreground, your riding buddies in the mid-ground, and that awesome backdrop. That's why you're the pro! Now, where in the Columbia Basin... Mining... I think I'm wrong here, but gotta start somewhere...somewhere near Sandon?:lurk

    I seriously doubt the people that maintain this cabin want it being advertised on the internet. Sorry to be that guy, but I'd strongly recommend you post a different photo and let some places just remain a hidden gem. Spoken from a guy that has made that mistake in the past and now try to keep some places off the radar of the internet world.
