Canadian Rockies (Canmore, Alberta)
After a full day of ice climbing at the "Junkyards", the trail took us past this beautiful scene (Lady Macdonald on left and Grotto Mountain on right) ....perfect end to a perfect day.

Yes, I've no clue why it's called what it is...someone at one time must have thought they were being witty by giving it that name and now we are all confused forever!

Mountain names - Lady Macdonald on left and Grotto Mountain on right - both scrambles although Lady Mac has interesting exposed ridge.

Happy to help.
Calgary is a great place to live for mountain access. I have lived several other places but this is the best for me.
Take care.

Probably a barbeque grill. They do the ice-
fishing thing, then just PLOP the fish onto
the grill. Salt is added to the fish, and then
they just chow down !!!

No, no picnic table anywhere! Because of you and others who shall remain nameless (LARRY) I now have a fear of picnic tables...to add to my fear of spiders and blue bags..thank you :-)

Hola Steve....Answers: because they are creeeepy crawlies! (Yach). Am planning a June trip to the Alps again! (yahoooo and yippeee) Well, I have more pics from the last trip, but I thought I would spare the the nice people on SP from several hundred pics of me clawing my way up some ice thing. (you're welcome)

Hope you're keeping well and training hard...cheers!
