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.
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!
Down the road a bit, there is a favourite spot, where a farmers pond overflow drains into the ditch. A three foot falls is the result. It changed interestingly with the seasons. Here it is in it ice stage!
As the Sun went down this afternoon, some fog heavy with smoke from somewhere rolled in and made for an interesting sunset.
