One of my favorite experiences in my first visit to Banff was the hike from Sunshine Mountain Lodge to see the peak of Mt. Assiniboine. The beautiful, unique formation of Assiniboine created a striking form on the horizon.
Hiking from Sunshine Village in the waning light of the day was a magical experience. The views of Rock Isle and Larix Lakes made a memorable end of the day.
The Grand Teton Mountains create a unique profile across the skies of Wyoming and Idaho. This panorama was captured from the famous, Schwabacher Landing. If you travel to Grand Teton National Park I would recommend you plan a morning taking in the view from this point.
