Wind Ridge (820 m elev. gain)

DSCF2659

Rimwall Summit poking through the clouds on the way up, nearing the ridge top in late July.

Wind Tower and the four Lougheed peaks (peak 4 later renamed Wind Mountain, although the Lougheed viewpoint information at the trail head refers to the Lougheed Massive’s five summits, so includes number 4). A peak west of Banff was originally named Mt. Lougheed before the name was transferred to these supposedly more prestigious-looking peaks in the 1940’s. For some reason the original Mt. Lougheed remains without an official name. Mt. Allan at extreme left.
