 Photos of the Canadian Rockies

This is the view back on the Portal Creek trail to the Tonquin Valley.   Marmot Mt. is the peak. This is Aquila mt and the Portal Creek trail looking towards the Tonquin Valley.  Near the town of Jasper, Alberta.
Castle Mt. from a bridge across the Bow River during a light snow in October.  This is near Castle Junction about 20 miles south of Lake Louise and 20 miles north of Banff. Castle Mt. from the same location as the photo on the left.  Taken two days later.  What a difference.  I enjoyed both days.
Johnston Creek after a snow in October.  This is about four miles south of Castle Mt. Follow Johnston Creek (left photo) past the waterfalls, up and over a pass, then descend into this valley and you come to the Ink Pots where you can find minerals to make dye as the Indians did.  There are trails to continue up the valley.
Castle Mt and the Bow River.  The photo to the right was taken in the valley to the right of Castle Mt on a clear, sunny, fall day. Fall color larch on the trail to Rockbound Lake.  The trail leaves Castle Junction and climbs up behind Castle Mt.  The distance to here is about 3 miles.  Castle Junction is between Banff and Lake Louise.
This is the trail to Lake Helen and Dolomite Pass.  The lake is just below the peak on the right, Cirque Peak, and the pass is on the right of the peak. Cirque Peak from Dolomite Pass (8200 feet).  Next year I want to finish the trip to Cirque Peak (9500 feet)
Dolomite Peaks from Dolomite Pass. Mt Hector from the trail to Lake Helen and Dolomite Pass in October.
Rainbow along the Icefields Parkway in Banff N.P.  I drove through the rainbow in about five minutes.  
Waterfowl Lake and Mt Cephren
This was taken after an early season snowfall that left a dusting of snow on the mountains.
Peyto Lake
This is a famous view in Banff National Park.  The National Park Service has asked to use this photo in a slide presentation on World Heritage Sites.
Cirrus Mt - summer view
This photo was taken during summer on a hike to the Saskatchewan glacier which is behind the photographer.
Cirrus Mt - winter view
This was taken on a cross country ski trip to the Saskatchewan glacier in March.
Morraine Lake, Banff National Park
One of the classic photos to take in the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks.

Mt Sir Donald Peak in Revelstoke N.P.  This was taken on the Great Glacier Trail. It is about 2.5 miles and 1000 feet up to get here.
