Description:
This photo is taken from the park road just east of the bridge over Igloo Creek, looking to the northern end of Cathedral Mountain. In looking at the mountains flank, note how the spruce forest has grown taller and thicker, and how some of the previously open meadow areas are now occupied by shrubs.
