I posted this in another thread but I thought I would also post it here.
Anybody who wants to know what Rocky Mountain they are looking at, if it is in the Canadian Rockies you can probably find it here:

Peaks of the Canadian Rockies (http://www.peakfinder.com/)

Great little website filled with all kinds of facts about specific mountains...who named it/who it was named after/who climbed it first/elevation etc. etc. There is also a Google Map with all the mountains posted in the website also.

I use it all the time. :)

I thought I would throw this one in also...more detail in scrambling routes and there's even a 360 panorama (interactive) of some mountains as as taken from the tops of the peaks. :)

hello...and thanks for the kind words...as I said it is a super resource that I always use when I need to research a photo trip to the Rockies.
