The city of Banff sits at the base of this famous Mountain. The Cree name was Waskahigan Watchi or house mountain, and we call it Mt. Rundel! The Vermilion Lakes add to this image. It is known for the Rundel Scramble as people like to climb to it’s peak. Looks easy! I don’t think so!
Episode 3 of Mountain Madnes. A cabin on the open range with a room with a view! Clear sky with the only cloud catching on the top of the mountain.
Towers and Cathedrals in the air is Episode 2 of Mountain Madness. Somewhere in the area of Banff, we came upon a storm that took the temperature from 20 C to 3 C in the space of a half a K. Then the rain came!
This is the first of a series of shots from my archive that I’ve never shown before. We have taken numerous trips into and through the mountains, over the years. I’d like to share some of them. I won’t necesarily know the name of the mountain, but if you live nearby you’ll know it!
The end of a perfect Winter day today. Marking almost the middle of the month the temperature was up to 11 degrees C and it was sunny. Every Sundown here, the Crows flock together and head down south to where the roost for the night. I don’t know where exactly, but it must be a noisy place, when they all gather! Also in this shot is a flock of Gulls heading inland for the night.
