View of the East Kootenays from Sunshine Ski Hill
"From the top of Sunshine Ski Resort the view is staggering; a sea of enormous peaks surrounds from all sides. One that always catches my eye is the dorsal fin in the distant East Kootenays, elegant and knife-sharp. I believe it is actually Split SE1, a sub-peak of Split Peak- a larger tower outside the edge of the image. Catlin Peak rises from the clouds, dark lines of evergreens climb out of Verdant Creek up the lower slopes of Mt. Shanks until they disappear above treeline. Interlacing ridges create a rhythmic pattern and are simplified to planes of light and dark as they trail into the distance."
