      MOUNT ROBSON -  BRITISH COLUMBIA

MOUNT ROBSON
THIS IS A MASSIVE AND DOMINANT MOUNTAIN!!

MOUNT ROBSON  BC
FULL SIZE IMAGE

Mount Robson is not in Alberta but it is in the British Columbia Canadian Rockies
and is a relatively short drive from Jasper, Alberta. Nature has created an inspiring sight
and the colossus is clearly visible from the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16).


Mount Robson is the second highest peak entirely in British Columbia, behind Mount
Waddington in the Coastal Range. The beauty of it changes with the time of day,
morning light (below) creates a different pallet of colors to tantalize and tease
your eyes than you will experience in the evening glow.

The mountain boasts great vertical relief over the surrounding terrain. From Kinney Lake the
south side of the mountain rises 3,000 m (9,843 ft) to the summit. The north face of Mount Robson
is heavily glaciated and 800 m (2,600 ft) of ice extends from the summit to Berg Glacier.

Those riding VIA RAIL or ROCKY MOUNTAINEER trains from
Jasper to Vancouver (or vice versa) will see Mount Robson in all her glory!
