Mount Temple Summit Panorama

Banff National Park, Canada

A 180ยบ panoramic vista looking from southeast to northwest from near the summit of Mount Temple (11624 ft / 3543 m). The brilliant turquoise Moraine Lake (where I started hiking) is visible over 5,000 feet below on the left side; on the right is Horseshoe Lakes. Though it's hard to see in this small web picture, in the full resolution panorama image you can see an endless sea of rugged peaks. This might be one of the most incredible summit views I've ever witnessed! Photo © copyright by Jack Brauer.
