Mt. Assiniboine comes into view?
Our hike continues reaching the farthest I am going today before turning back toward the bus stop. Hiking has been fairly simple to this point. Mt. Assiniboine can be seen in the right side of the picture. Unfortunately, clouds prohibit viewing the entire moutain which is considered the Matterhorn of North America. I waited for a long time to see the top of the peak but never did before turning around to go back. Other pictures I have seen of the mountain make me dissapointed the clouds got in the way. It's getting quite cold now and the feeling of snow is in the air. Is this really August? At 3,618 m (11,871 ft), Mt. Assiniboine is the highest peak in the Southern Continental Ranges of the Canadian Rockies...Scanned negative

Well taken lord Jim. But I have always found that if you want to see the top. GO THERE.

So true Barry. That mountain would take some MAJOR climbing though. More than that is in my skill level!!
