This view of Mount Rundle over the partially frozen 2nd Vermillion Lake makes the mountain look imposing but also so beautiful as it shines in the partial sunlight and is covered with snow. This mountain is located near the town of Banff in Banff National Park. It is also part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Mount Rundle was named after Reverend Robert Rundle by John Palliser, who visited the area in 1858. Revered Robert Rundle was a missionary who came from England to western Canada to do some work here. He set up a deal with the Hudson's Bay Company to travel across Canada to set up missionaries, but due to a horse accident he hurt his wrist and as it did not heal properly he returned to England for treatment. He never returned to this land again, but Mount Rundle will always remind people of Reverend Rundle's work in the area and about what he did for the region.

Mount Rundle, which is 2949 metres (9675 feet) high, is also one of the best sites in the region for scrambling. Scrambling is when hikers use a combination of hillwalking and rock climbing to ascend a mountain. However, as with all mountain climbing in any form, it is still a dangerous high vertical rock face and you must take good care if you wish to try and make it to the top.
