Fairview Mountain

(1) This is Fairview Mountain as seen from Lake Louise Campground. The smaller peak to the left is the Saddle Peak 7993'.
From the upper parking lot at Lake Louise, simply follow the Saddleback Trail to get behind Fairview. Saddleback Peak becomes visible, and Fairview's southeast wall. Closer to Saddleback, we started seeing more and more people.

We reached the summit after hiking for about three hours.
We spent a good amount of time at the summit waiting for Mt. Temple to be cloud free but it never happened. We had a great view of Mount Victoria and the glaciers though.
