Terrain North of Vertebrae Glacier

This "Google Earth" satellite image shows the northeastern part of the Chatter Creek tenure (Chatter North) and features of the Rocky Mountains and North America's continental divide visible from Chatter Creek's Vertebrae Glacier. To the northeast, Mt Columbia, the Snow Dome and the Columbia Icefield can be seen and to the northwest, Tsar Mountain rises above the horizon and the Clemenceau Icefield is also clearly visible. Mount Norton, the Apex Glacer and Mt. Eden are part of the vista, but are not clearly descernable.

The Snow Dome in the Columbia Icefield is unique in being the source of drainage into three oceans, the Pacific, the Arctic and the Atlantic (by Hudson's Bay). The Columbia Icefield is the source of the famous Columbia and Athabasca glaciers.
