This peak makes me think of the Matterhorn, the same way that it is erected.
I find fascinating the way the different colours are layered at the base.

Hilda Peak is located in northern Banff National Park near the boundary with Jasper National Park. It is situated immediately east Mount Athabasca, west of Parker Ridge, and southwest of Sunwapta Pass. Hilda (also known as A3) is a subsidiary peak of Mount Athabasca. The scenic Icefields Parkway passes to the east and the reddish Hilda Peak can be seen prominently from the highway. The Boundary Glacier graces its west flank, and the Hilda Glacier is on the south side.
