15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Climbing to the top of Cascade Mountain, Banff National Park, AB, Canada
After a long day we finally reached the summit! Rather exhausted, I made this panorama which included my climbing partner looking over a precipice. We came from Delaware, but brought a Canadian flag to the summit! Forest fires caused the smoke visible on the right. By the time we began descending, the smoke was starting to encircle the mountain.
