Katherine Lake from Cirque Peak

    Newer Older

    Cirque Peak is little more than a steep hike, one of the easiest summits mere hikers can reach. The panorama it offers is tremendous.

      I was there in October looking at the Stromatolite beds at the base of Cirque Peak, if I could go back I would like to take this shot overlooking the beds specifically to get a plan view.

      Thank you all for your comments!

      John, this photo was taken from near the summit of Cirque Peak. It's a steep but straightforward hike from the base of the mountain to the top, very popular in the summer. I've seen families with 10 year old kids ascending it. You won't have problems reaching the top. Views are spectacular:

      This is a great photo of John Payzant taken from the summit towards Wapta Icefield:

      I was not as lucky as him. Done this peak twice and both times the Wapta was shrouded in clouds.
