14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Climbing Pigeon Spire in Bugaboos Provincial Park, Canada

As we descended Pigeon Spire, the Howser Towers overshadowed the base of our climb in Bugaboos Provincial Park, Canada. These granite spires are buried in the Purcell Mountains, of British Columbia, and contain some of the best climbing routes in the World. Found at the top of a melting glacier, this location is as rugged as it is beautiful.
