Artist's Description

The lofty, snowy peak of Castle Mountain looms above a forest of lodge-pole pines beneath a cloudy blue sky.

Castle Mountain is located within Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada in the Canadian Rockies, approximately half-way between Banff and Lake Louise.

The mountain was named in 1858 by James Hector for its castle-like or fortress appearance. Following the post-war visit of U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower, the name was changed to Mount Eisenhower by the then Canadian Prime Minister W. L. Mackenzie-King. Eventually, public pressure forced the name to be changed back in 1979 to its original but an isolated pinnacle at the southeastern end is now called Eisenhower Tower.

Captured with a Canon Rebel XSi usi8ng an 18-55mm lens.
