This September photo shows lower elevations in the Skeena-Omineca-Central Canadian Rocky Mountains; this region's drainage network has been disrupted by glaciation, with numerous lakes of varying sizes. The landscape is mostly forested, with lower elevations having a mix of evergreen conifers and deciduous trees, visible here as they change color in autumn, a season that arrives quite early this far north. This is a crop of a photo by Lauren Bosch.
