Fall colors dot the rocky landscape in Mumm Basin, high above aquamarine Berg Lake (the vivid turquoise color of the water is due to the presence of rock flour, finely-ground particles of rock formed by glacial erosion, in the lake). On the right, glaciated Mount Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, rises above Berg Lake. To the left, Robson Glacier and Robson Lake form the headwaters of Robson River, a tributary of the Fraser River, which is the longest river in British Columbia. Later on this moody September afternoon, snow would fall on Mumm Basin and the surrounding peaks.
