Cascade Mountain is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Banff National Park. It towers over the city and is often photographed from the main street. For quit some time I knew I wanted to paint it, but am more attracted to the idea of wild places so I set out to ﬁnd my own view of Cascade. After an morning of bush wacking my way up the Bow River, I found a clam part of the river with the perfect view of Cascade Mountain. I got my sketch and a few photos and a few soakers. I then headed home to start painting and dry my socks.
