Pilot Mountain

Filed under: Autumn, Nature, Travel — collin j örthner @ 5:36 am

Pilot Mountain is a mountain in the Bow River valley of Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is located southeast of Redearth Creek and directly west of the Trans-Canada Highway. The mountain was named in 1884 by George M. Dawson, for its location is where the Bow Valley changes direction, thus affording distant views of the mountain all along the valley. Pilot Mountain can be scrambled on the northwest face by someone with good routefinding skills.(Wikipedia) This image was made looking south from Moose Meadows along Highway 1A.
