Castle Mountain, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada 01

Description : Unlike the steeply bedded slopes of the Front Ranges, Castle Mountainís layers are almost horizontal in appearance. The name pays tribute to its castle-like appearance, typical of castellate peaks. These layers of Middle Cambrian limestones have been pushed more than 40 km (24 mi.) inland along a shallow incline.

The tower on the right-hand side is named Eisenhower Tower after the late president of the United States.
