Incredible Mount Assiniboine: The Great Divide on the British Columbia-Alberta border.

Hiking to the base of Mount Assiniboine was a dream for me. The trail up allowed many beautiful views. There is an authentic cabin located at the base of the mountain which was a challenge to reach. The elevation gain is not much of a factor but it is a long hike in. If you feel like you want to visit the place without any physical stress, you can fly in by helicopter and then hike around the peak. If you’re still stressed out, you might want to try rafting on the Kicking Horse River.

I call this particular picture Morning Light. With the glacier lake so calm and the sky so colourful, I really immersed myself in this fantastic landscape at the base of Mount Assiniboine. This paradise forms a part of an UNESCO treasure.

The Canadian Rockies inspires freedom and a simple life.
