The Grotto Scar

From my office I look out out to the north and can view the entire stretch of Grotto Mountain, a large mountain at the SE end of the Fairholme Range directly North of the Bow River and the town of Canmore. It is a popular hiking spot among locals and is home to the Rat’s Nest Cave. The mountain is blighted by a large mining scar running up its SW slopes, the result of a limestone quarry.

My Rocky Mountain Window operate’s a weather camera which takes a photo of Grotto Mountain and update’s every 2 minutes. Click on Image for a current image. The scar is dead centre.
