Mt. Louis - Banff National Park - Canada

    Newer Older

    Here's a view of Mt. Louis framed amongst the trees.

    Cascade Mountain is one of those peaks you just have to climb. No, it isn't exactly known for its challenging terrain, serenity, etc.

    It's just that the mountain is in your face every time you drive into Banff.

    Just like it's lofty neighbor of Mt. Rundle, it constantly urges you to stand on its summit every time you make that turn towards Canmore on Hwy 1.

    The elevation gain to the ampitheatre is around 600m. Once there, it's another 800m or so to the summit.

    Thankfully, the views were great once I reached the ampitheatre. Until then, there was absolutely no view except for the ocassional glance of Mt. Norquay through the thick trees.

    Due to the popularity of the peak, the trails were in excellent shape with almost zero scree.

    Check here the 'aftermath' of that day :P
