A winter scene shows the snow covered Fairholme Range in the Banff National Park with a wonderful full moon sitting just above the snow covered range. This national park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
In 1859, John Palliser named the range after his sister, Grace Fairholme. The highest peak of the Fairholme Range is Mount Girouard at 9,827 feet or 2,995 meters. The Fairholme Range includes Mount Girouard, Mount Inglismaldie, Mount Peechee, Mount Charles Stewart, Grotto Mountain, Mount Lady Macdonald, Princess Margaret Mountain, and Squaw's Tit.
This wonderful view of the Fairholme Range during winter with a bright full moon is from the 2nd Vermilion Lake in Banff National Park near the town of Banff.
In western North America, the Rocky Mountains run from northern part of British Columbia in Canada to New Mexico in the United States. The Rocky Mountains measure 2,980 miles or 4,800 kilometers.
