Being able to identify the most eye-catching peaks of the Canadian Rockies seen from our mountain highways makes driving through the mountains much more rewarding. As well, this book will introduce you to their naming history and the people, history, geology, and stories connected with these peaks. Through photographs and viewing tips, “Landmark Mountains of the Canadian Rockies” will help you identify 137 of our most outstanding peaks. If you want to get to know your favourites even better, hiking trails that will lead you to the best views are suggested. Learn about the outstanding peaks we see from the roads and then keep the book in your glove compartment as a reference.
