Mount Rundle – Banff National Park, Canada

One of the most scenic drives in the world is the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) through Banff and Jasper National Parks. Along the route is Mount Rundle overlooking the towns of Banff and Canmore in Alberta, Canada. In 1858 the mountain was named after the Reverend Robert Rundle, who had visited the Banff area during the 1840s. Mount Rundle is formed of outcrops of massive limestones. Along with Cascade Mountain,  Mt. Rundle is one of the most popular scrambling peaks in Banff. Mt. Rundle could actually be considered a small mountain range because the mountain extends for over 7.5 miles, with many high points along the way, ending at Whiteman’s Gap above the town of Canmore.
