Castle Mtn, Alberta Panorama
Castle Mountain, Banff NP, Alberta, Canada

Enlarge for best viewing.

2,766 m. (9,074 ft.)

This mountain was named in 1858 for its obvious fortress or castle-like appearance and reddish-rock by James Hector. An imposing peak in the Bow Valley, this mountain dominates the view for much of the journey from Banff to Lake Louise along Rt. 1, the Trans-Canadian Highway

Taken mid-September, 2011 from the Bow Valley Parkway
