Schnee Kamm

Schnee Kamm

I said that I could fill this blog with photographs from my flight back from Vancouver. Well, I've waited a month so I think it's safe to put another one up.

Schnee Kamm is the name of one of the many peaks that you can see here. It's sort of in the middle right but is not really so distinct that I can easily point it out. I thought it was appropriate as a title for this photo even though it's not as bizarre as Tutankhamen Peak, Sinister Peak or Mount Luxor which are also in the shot. I guess when you have that many mountains to name you get a little creative.

This was taken a little before my Misty Icefield photo so you can see some of the same peaks here as well as the Misty Icefield itself.

Since in this shot I'm not pointing the camera down so much, you get to see the mountains stretching out as far as the eye can see. Beautiful. Unbelievably beautiful.

I could stare at that all day.

So, eleven minutes north of a view like this, you get a view like this. From a metropolis of two million people to a place you can't even imagine people could get to.

My other photographs of mountains can be found in the gallery.
