Few things epitomize the drama of nature than a vast boreal forest, a towering monolithic mountain and a sky full of dark rolling clouds. These all came together as we approached Mt. Fitzwilliam in Mt. Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada. It’s most distinctive feature is the two-tone shade of the rock, it’s upper half being quartzite and the lower half dolomite. At first it looked like this was caused by shadows from the clouds but later on found the real reason. It also stands somewhat alone from the other ridges of the Rocky Mountains, giving it a more massive appearance.
