Image Caption: STS028-072-051 McNaughton Lake, British Columbia, Canada August 1989
Most of the snow capped (white) rugged terrain in this section of the Canadian Rocky Mountains exceeds 10000 feet (3048 meters) in elevation above sea level. The large cluster of white features in the upper left corner of the image show the location of the Clemenceau and Columbia ice fields. The snow capped Selkirk Mountains, located southwest (right-center) of the linear Columbia River Valley, also shows smaller areas of ice and snow on the higher peaks and ridges. This section of the Columbia River Valley, called Kinbasket Lake, has angular looking patterns in the valley near the river where logging activities (clear cutting) has occurred.
