Looming presence of the Monarch

Banff NP, Alberta, Canada

Our hike from Sunshine Meadows toward Healy Pass and Simpson Pass often offered the view of the Monarch. It was not uncommon to see one stop and admire the looming presence of one of the highest summits in the area. It is only a few hundred feet shy of 10K, which makes Monarch Mountain the 37th tallest peak in Canada.
