The other side of the mountain

The south face of Castle Mountain can be seen for almost forty kilometers along the TransCanada Highway between  Banff and Lake Louise. I have painted that side at least twice – in October 2012  and April 2009.

The other side of the mountain, shown here, is only seen by the intrepid few who hike several kilometres up from the highway.

The north face of Pilot Mountain, in the centre of the picture, is about sixteen kilometers away, on the other side of the Bow Valley facing the highway, and will be more familiar to anyone who has driven that stretch of the TransCanada.
