    The Drive from Banff to Jasper passes one gets to view the Athabasca glacier in all its glory. This day it was overcast with the clouds at a low elevation almost obscuring the view. In summer you can also take a ride to the glacier itself. For a brief moment the clouds cleared enough to get a glimpse. Didn't last more than a couple of minutes - enough to stop and take a quick shot.

    C&C Welcome

    That's a rather imposing mountain peeking through the clouds. Glad you got a break in the cloud cover to get the shot.

    That's some mountain I wonder if the one behind it is even larger?

    Super cool Jameel. I like how the peak is just slightly veiled. I really like the look of this.

    Nice moody shot - typical of the Rockies. That is the end of a ridge on Mt. Athabasca, the Athabasca Glacier is down in the valley to the right. The peak barely visible behind is Andromeda, which is about the same size and height of Athabasca. These easy access peaks have a variety of routes from easy to quite difficult, and are good practice for the bigger and harder peaks in the area.
