Lett, by courtesy o0 Lrana 1runK i-acic railway A CATCH OP GOAT ON THE SLOPE OF TITKANA PEAK BELOW SNOWBIRD PASS feet= 2,042 meters) (see page 630), I noted that the pass was on the line of a fault that had displaced and tilted up a great block of limestones and shales. Climbing a high point, Robson Peak was seen far to the southwest, with several high ridges between the pass and the peak. As the work went on from Moose Pass camp, mountains, ridges, lakes, great snow fields, and glaciers were ex amined, and finally we camped in the forest of Robson Pass, near the shore of Berg Lake, at the foot of the crowning glory of all-Robson Peak. The view of Robson and its glaciers from above our camp is one of the finest views of a mountain mass that I have ever seen. By a happy combination of fair weather and a kindly disposed Al Vista camera, the great photograph ac ,companying this paper was secured, and through the enterprise of your Editor it is given to all the readers of the NA TIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE (see Sup- plement of this number). When the exposure was made, the camera stood on the south slope of Mumm Peak, about 1,800 feet (548.6 meters) above Berg Lake. The horses are near the edge of a cliff overlooking the lake. Robson Peak rises majestically cliff on cliff for 7,000 feet (2,136 meters) above Berg Lake to its summit, where the va pors from the Pacific gather nearly every day of the year. At times the peak stands out clear, sharp, and glistening against the pure blue sky, but usually the mist gathers and trails about it in wisps, streamers, or solid clouds that often clothe the mountain in a mantle of white to its base. Again, about Robson and on the sum mit of its northern spur-Iyatunga(black rock) (see Panorama)-the mists will gather as though impelled by a cyclone funneled from the mountain top, sug gesting a great volcano belching forth smoke and steam far and near.
