Purple Mountain Majesty

Mount Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia

When visiting the Canadian Rockies, the first places that come to mind are Banff and Jasper National Parks. There is so much to do and see that many don't usually explore further into the Rockies. When we visited Jasper, the weather was downright awful with rain most of the days we were there. A little bored, we decided to take a trip west into British Columbia to see if we could at least find somewhere where it wasn't raining. As luck would have it, we found Mount Robson Provincial Park. The park is located entirely within British Columbia, bordering Jasper National Park. The park is named for Mount Robson, which is pictured here and is the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. Mount Robson stands tall within the park rising about 7,500 feet from Berg Lake to the summit. As I framed this image, I immediately thought of the words, purple mountain majesty from the song.
