Archive for the ‘The List of the 100 Mountains’ Category

The List as of April 23, 2013

This is the updated list from the one posted April 23, 2009. As I research mountains to add, the list will be modified little by little. Many other mountains are suggested by the people of the Flickr.com group for the 100 Famous Mountains of Canada, who posted photos.

This is the list as it stands so far. There are still dozens of mountains not on the list that I have to research, several mountains on the list that I may replace, and many mountains I don’t even know about yet but I may find them on the Internet as I check out other sites. There are also many well-known mountain parks and reserves around the country that have beautiful and popular mountains that I plan to dig through. The list, thus, will change as I do more research and make amendments.

Included here are the 10 highest summits in Canada. At first I felt it was essential to include all of our peaks over 4,000 metres but now I have decided it would be better to limit the list to the 10 highest and then include some from the next 10 highest that distinguish themselves, such as Mt. Robson and Mt. Waddington. As for mountains in British Columbia, some of the last few on the list are currently in question and there is a chance they may be cut. The mountains of Central and Eastern Canada will basically not change, though I am still checking out Newfoundland and Labrador, and Quebec, and I hope to add a few more. The Mountains of the North are still incomplete and the list might be expanded over ten, cutting some from British Columbia.

Note: Other than the list of the highest, which is in order of elevation, the other lists are not exactly in any predetermined order.
