Assiniboine, Milkey Way, and Mars
“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable” Mary Olive
Spent most of the night just below Nub Peak (2,755 m or 9,039 ft) to get this shot. I like the perspective higher up as Mount Assiniboine (3,618m or 11,870ft) rightfully towers over Sunburst Peak (2,849 m or 9,347 ft) in the foreground which you don’t appreciate at the nublet far below. Was a wee bit chilly up there at night. However between a warm dinner and our portable espresso machine, which @saultphotography and I lugged up there, we were warm and awake. Lucky to have a particularly large Mars thanks to its close 2018 approach and managed to line it up nicely with the top of Assiniboine. Made for an interesting decent with our head torches but we eventually made it back down to the tent just ahead of dawn, for a brief rest before getting up somewhat deliriously to shoot the sunrise at Magog Lake.
