Sunset lights up the skies nicely over two of the Three Sisters. Big Sister is out of sight on the right. Here we have Little Sister and Middle Sister.

"In 1883, Albert Rogers named these mountains the Three Nuns after a storm left a heavy veil of snow on the northern face of all three peaks. They were renamed the Three Sisters in 1886 by George Dawson and they are referred to individually as Big Sister, Middle Sister and Little Sister. Heavily associated with the town of Canmore in the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies known as Kananaskis Country, the Three Sisters may be the most recognized peaks in the Bow River Valley section of the TransCanada Highway (Hwy 1)." travelalberta.com

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

A cool shot for a hot day.....

Was a fun hike up Bow Summit in the snow to catch the sunset over this iconic lake. Wicked winds as well, as the ruffled lake shows. One of my all-time favorite hikes and sunsets.

"The lake is formed in a valley of the Waputik Range, between Caldron Peak, Peyto Peak and Mount Jimmy Simpson, at an elevation of 1,860 m (6,100 ft).

Ebenezer William "Bill" Peyto (14 February 1869 in Welling, Kent – 23 March 1943 in Banff, Alberta) was a pioneer, railway laborer and mountain guide. As a guide, Peyto was chosen to lead Edward Whymper to Vermilion Pass. His large photograph prominently marks the entrance to the town of Banff, Alberta. Peyto Glacier on the Continental Divide and Peyto Lake are named in his honour.

Peyto worked as a park warden in the Banff National Park from 1913 until his retirement in 1936, with his duties interrupted by his service in the First World War."

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!

Mt. Rae ahead as one climbs on The Bighorn Highway (Hwy 40) from this first summit on the way south to the top of Highwood Pass. This spectacularly scenic road is also known as the Kananaskis Trail.

Highwood Pass summit is 7239 feet (2206 m). The Pass is the highest paved pass in Canada.
The pass is closed each year from December to June 15 to protect wildlife.

To me Kananaskis Country could be called Banff south. Same mountain range running towards Glacier Park. Jaw dropping beauty around every corner.

Have a terrific Tuesday!
