My brother and I were travelling along Hwy 93 North in Banff National Park, Alberta. Ahead of us was Bow Summit. We pulled over,off the road. I set up my tripod and camera. So I had the snow covered mountains , open scrub land and highway 93. Thus the composition I created is what you see above. The two cars give you the perspective of the mountain height.

The Rocky Mountains took shape during an intense period of plate tectonic activity that resulted in much of the rugged landscape of western Canada A close look at the structure of the mountain will show you the layers of sedimentary rock that created this mountain. The Canadian Rockies are composed of layered sedimentary rock such as limestone and shale.
