Really nice mid afternoon scramble. Had to head back from the summit almost right after I got there due to some storms moving in. Really great views!

Much of southern Alberta had rain the week I went, including the Rockies. About halfway up, the rain became snow. It was really windy at the summit, and you could just barely see the surrounding peaks. I was the only one to summit that day. Not a good day for pictures.

Fairview was the first real mountain summit I ever climbed. Incredible views from the top looking 3000 feet down to Lake Louise and 10,000 foot peaks all around.

Did this the following day after St. Piran. Even better views from the top than the day before! A bit crowded and unfortunately the squirrels and chipmunks are pretty bold up there - certainly from being fed (intentionally and otherwise) from all the traffic. Nice weather, but was quite windy up top on this day. Definitely a worthy outing in the area!

Three hours car to car while my family was comfortably asleep at Moraine Lake. Incredible views. Celebrated Canada day with my new canuck friend - a marmot I shared the summit with.

Did Fairview Mountain after a recent dusting of snow, made Temple look magnificent, even more so than it did a week ago when we climbed it. Easy route, did Saddleback Mountain as well.

How can such an easy climb have such great views? :-D I was almost too lazy to pick my way up here after zoning out, but then I got a spurt of energy and summitted within an hour of leaving Lake Louise.

Great hike to the top with amazing views. Left Lake Louise nice and early in the morning (6:50) and managed to make it up by 8:45 to enjoy the morning without anybody else on the trail. Definitely recommended.

Hiked up to the summit after Saddleback with my wife. We used to love the Post Hotel in the village and the bakery during our visits in the 90s

Did saddle peak as well. Peak of Indian summer with golden larches and great summit views and no lack of people to converse with ;)

Nice hike up, not too crowded and good weather. Great views of Lake Louise and the surrounding mountains. (If you try it, look for the pikas in the rock fields).

Summited with three friends. Marvelous views of the surrounding peaks and the busy avalanche activity going on all over the place. Practiced glissading and self arresting techniques on the way down.

Via Saddleback Pass. Of all of the mountains I've climbed, I'd have to say this one has the best view of its close neighbors: the Mitre, Mt. Aberdeen, Lefroy, Victoria Glacier--stunning.

So many hikers on the mountain that day! The amazing glacier views sealed my fate as a scrambler, I'll have to go back sometime.

Climbed Mount Fairview during my first trip to Banff. Great view from the top and popular summit in the area. The Canadian Rockies were just as I imagined them to be. Very beautiful mountains.
