Mount Robson

Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America's Rocky Mountainrange; it is also the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. The mountain is located entirely within Mount Robson Provincial Park of British Columbia, and is part of theRainbow Range. Mount Robson is the second highest peak entirely in British Columbia, behind Mount Waddington in the Coast Range. The south face of Mount Robson is clearly visible from the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16), and is one of the most photographed features along this route. Mount Robson was likely named after Colin Robertson, who worked for both the North West Company and theHudson’s Bay Company at various times in the early 19th century. The Texqakallt, aSecwepemc people and the earliest inhabitants of the area, call it Yuh-hai-has-kun,The Mountain of the Spiral Road. Other unofficial names include Cloud Cap Mountain.
