East End of Rundle
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 19, 2010

When we first climbed the EEOR in 2001 we took few photos, but this time we took our time, making frequent stops to look around and take out our cameras. Indeed, if I hadn't stopped to look behind at one point, I would have missed seeing a mountain goat!


Well along the trail, the trees begin to thin


Sweetflower Rockjasmine (thanks to Ed Hergott for identifying it)


Looking back


The views open up, but the summit is still far off


Behind us is the Goat Range


We kept to the right but came down the gully (hidden on the left)


Looking back across the plateau


Looking back, a mountain goat appeared in an area we had passed


Ha Ling and Lawrence Grassi fill the background
