Mount Morrison and Mount Turner from Buller Pond # 837

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2001.10.04
Vantage Point: From east side of Buller Pond

Caption: Mount Morrison (left centre) and Mount Turner (right centre) are reflected in the still cold waters of Buller Pond on a crisp October morning.

PhotoDescr: Although about 10 km away, across the boundary of Banff National Park, the two peaks that tower over the Bryant Creek trail to Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park and the Spray River Valley seem close enough to touch in the clear fall air. I was driving south on the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Lakes Trail (Alberta Road 742) for a dayhike at Highwood Pass when this photo op brought me to a halt. I walked a few meters to the pond side to take this picture.

I believe the peak on the far right behind the Morrison-Turner ridge is the east face of Mount Assiniboine; although it looks too close, it looks right and nothing else lines up.
