The Ten Peaks were shrouded this chilly autumn morning which created a beautiful moody ambience for first light. Waited hours before a peak finally poked thru (seen below).
Never a bad day here.

Enjoy a wonderful Holiday weekend!

Two pointy peaks seen when driving north on Banff's Icefields Parkway.

This perspective shows the horned-shaped tip of Mount Athabasca near the top that is called the "Silverhorn".

Just one of the zillions (OK, billions) of crazy cool peaks seen along this amazing drive.

Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!

Some light breaks thru the cloud cover to illuminate a portion of Banff's iconic Castle Mountain.

"The mountain was named in 1858 by James Hector for its castle-like appearance. From 1946 to 1979 it was known as Mount Eisenhower in honour of the World War II general Dwight D. Eisenhower. Public pressure caused its original name to be restored, but a pinnacle on the southeastern side of the mountain was named Eisenhower Tower (at front here)." Wiki

Thanks for taking a look!

Watermelon peak is called that after J.L. Putnam and friends climbed to the top, hauling up a large watermelon, which they then consumed, celebrating the accomplishment of being the first group to climb it. Now wouldn't that be a refreshing treat after this challenging climb?

Happy Friday!

The still waters of Herbert Lake captured the reflections of Mt. Temple and the Bow Mountains nicely this memorable morning.

Just some of the stunning beauty seen along Banff/Jasper's Icefields Parkway.

Thanks for taking a look! Always appreciated.
