This was a rather nice scramble to the top of a mountain with great views- between Lake Louise and Moraine Lake.

The 'scramble' to the top just involved clambering over some loose rock- there's lots of it in the Rockies! Here is martina on the summit, Temple in the background with some fresh snow on the summit. we climbed this one ten years ago in 2002.

View Larger MapAfter flying into Calgary from Scotland, we camped near the town of Canmore south of the main Rockies National Parks. Prominant to the south of Canmore were the three sisters- rocky peaks. We decided to hike up the Middle Sister for our first 'warm up' day to get rid of jet lag....
We followed trails through the forest but at times found it easiest to climb up the river gulley....
Once above the trees the views opened out to the distinctive Canadian 'front ranges' with their banded sedimentary rock layers.
Quite a dry arid landscape on the east side of the Rockies.
