Peters Pool named after a 9 year old boy, Peter Westland, who camped here by himself in 1894

Making the most of this warm spring day we wandered to a view we often see but today was photo worthy! When Peter camped here the glacier was in full view, reaching around the corner with the terminal face just at the back of the lake. This is a Kettle Lake left behind by the retreating glacier hundreds of years ago. Large blocks of slower melting ice left huge depressions in the valley floor.
