The Talbot Creek map area straddles the Ruby and Nisling ranges. Broad treeless uplands dominate the landscape with summits reaching 2100 m above sea level in the Ruby Range and 1800 m above sea level in the Nisling Range. Upland surfaces are covered with weathered bedrock colluvium and sporadically distributed till deposits from former alpine glaciers and ice sheets. Upland surficial deposits are affected by active periglacial processes such as cryoturbation, nivation and solifluction.
