In all the Canadian Rocky Mountains,Castle Mountain has always been my favourite. Maybe because it stands somewhat aloof and towers over the surrounding forest.Most times I’ve seen it in early winter but this was a different perspective. A few minutes earlier it was in a clear sky but a sudden wall of black clouds came on the wind and covered the peaks. I hoped to get a break and suddenly the sunlight came through like a giant spotlight.
Castle Mountain is in Banff National Park, Alberta,Canada, near the southeastern end of the park.
