Molar Pass

Went up on a nice ramble with friends to Molar Pass. While a good chunk of this trail is in the forest, the grades are such that you barely notice the elevation change, and the creek and forest en route are very picturesque. I was not anticipating such a majestic view at the pass, and overall was pleasantly surprised by this hike.

Circling around the Molar from the Icefields Parkway trailhead
The view from the pass, looking due West
Lounging around, eating, and trying to avoid the horse flies at the pass!
Peeking over into the next valley to the East
Heading back down for pizza and beers in Banff
