Heart of the Rockies

The peak in the center of the photo, back inside the canyon, is Hayden Spire, 12,480 feet or 3804 meters. The big mountain to the left of the canyon is Stone Peak, 12,922 feet or 3939 meters. The mountains in the distance to the left of the canyon and left of Stones Peak are all over 13,000 feet high. The area at the top of the canyon, near the Hayden Spire is a glacial cirque or the head of historic glacier. There is very little snow left at this time of year and of course, no glacier. The peak at the extreme right of the photo is Terra Tomah Mountain at 12,718 feet or 3877 meters.
