A fellow photog takes a shot of the Tetons on a beautiful Autumn day.

I've visited the Tetons numerous times. Most often I couldn't see them as they were shrouded in clouds. I hit the bonanza this fine day. Lots of grins and clicks.

Thanks for a taking a look. Much appreciated!

Happy Friday!

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!

Peaks have always been my magnet, my prime objective. I've been blessed to see and experience many iconic peaks with their beautiful ecosystems around them. The main target of my 2015 trip to the Last Frontier was to see the highest peak on the continent. For 6 days in the park it was shrouded in clouds, which isn't unusual as it creates it's own weather system. Fortunately I was finally rewarded with several days of it standing tall and magnificent, like this. I was awestruck.

"The Koyukon Athabaskans and other local tribes who inhabit the area around the mountain have for centuries referred to the peak as Dinale or Denali. The name is based on a Koyukon word for "high" or "tall." That it is!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
