This peak is named after an Iroquois guide that lead the Paliser expedition through the Athabasca valley in the days of the fur trade. It has been rumored the name “Tekarra” loosely translated as “Light Dancing on Water”. So when you look on the water and see the shimmering light, you can say you saw Tekarra.
A great peak to summit on a cool day. The photos we took on this particular day was hot and dry, lucky we found a nice little source of water for our adventure.
This is an all day adventure, take lots of water.
