Heads up. You’re in Grizzly country now folks.

On the way to Takakkaw Falls.A mountain called The President.
Wikipedia says:
The President was named Shaugnessy in 1904 by Edward Whymper after Thomas Shaugnessy,
the president of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

In 1907, the mountain was renamed by the Alpine Club of Canada,
after it was discovered that the name had already been used on a mountain in the Selkirks (mountains).

Takakkaw Falls

I had been to the Rockies many times, but had never seen this.
Amazing!
