Get out[edit]

Mount Robson in Northern British Columbia is not to be missed. At 3954m, it is the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. It is rare to see this mountain completely cloud free, it is so tall it seems to make its own weather. However, if you do happen to see it on one of those rare bluebird days you will know instantly that you are seeing something special. Located on Hwy 16 just east of where it meets Hwy 5 (about 20km northeast of Valemount).
