Through photographs, viewing tips and maps, this book will introduce you to 154 peaks that may be seen from our highways, both within Kananaskis Country and from the foothills to the east.

The mountains include those within Kananaskis Country and peaks in the Bow Valley and Ghost River area.

Identifying and knowing more about these mountains will make your travels along the highways much more rewarding. You'll learn about their naming history and the people, history, geology, and stories connected with the peaks.

As well, you'll better understand the geography of the area and be introduced to some of the hiking trails and plants, animals, and birds that live amongst these mountains.
