I liked my earlier post of The Windtower in color but prefer the moodiness of this impressive spire in monochrome.

Just one of the peaks that grabs one's attention when driving north on the TransCanada Highway near Canmore.

Your views, comments, faves and suggestions are always appreciated!

Alberta's Miner's Peak and Ha Ling Peak come forth from the early morning fog.
Thanks for the peak's name clarification Rob!

Color version in comments.

Hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start!

Looking across Whiteman's Pond as the Smith Dorien Trail leads the lucky into the northern end of K Country. Spectacular mountain beauty coming up for those fortunate to travel through here.

Some pics in comments of some of the beauty that is The Kananaskis.

May your weekend be wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable.

Two major peaks near Canmore Alberta.

Many may think this peak (earlier called Wind Mountain) was named after the former Premier of Alberta, Peter Lougheed (who has a large spectacular provincial park nearby named after him) but was in fact re-named in 1928 after Sir James Lougheed a major prominant political leader and grandfather of Peter.

Happy Friday! Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

A fascinating U shaped peak rising above Canmore AB captured at daybreak.

"The name of the mountain has been subject to much controversy. Originally, the mountain was referred to locally as The Beehive. In 1896 Ha Ling, a Chinese cook for the Canadian Pacific Railway was bet 50 dollars that he could not climb the peak and plant a flag on the summit in less than 10 hours. According to the Medicine Hat News of October 22, 1896, he started the ascent at 7:00 am the previous Saturday morning and was back in time for lunch. As nobody believed his story, he led a party of doubters to the summit where he planted a much larger flag beside the original, this one visible to the naked eye from Canmore. The townsfolk referred to the mountain as Chinaman's Peak in his honour.

In 1997 it was renamed Ha Ling Peak as the term Chinaman was viewed as derogatory." Wikipedia

Couple more shots below.

Enjoy your Sunday and week ahead!
