Mount Kerkeslin

Looking across a nearby snow cornice towards Mount Kerkeslin (2984m or 9791ft) which is the highest peak of the Maligne Range in the Canadian Rockies. Named in 1859 by James Hector, the reason for the name was not recorded and remains a mystery with some now believing the name of the mountain was based on a lost Indian word for wolverine. Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.
