Castle Mountain - Fred Buchwitz

Castle Mountain is a mountain located within Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies,
approximately half-way between Banff and Lake Louise. It is the easternmost mountain
of the Main Ranges in the Bow Valley and sits astride the Castle Mountain Fault which has
thrust older sedimentary and metamorphic rocks forming the upper part of the mountain
over the younger rocks forming its base. The mountain's castellated, or castle-like, appearance
is a result of erosive processes acting at different rates on the peak's alternating layers of
softer shale and harder limestone, dolomite and quartzite.

The mountain was named in 1858 by James Hector for its castle-like appearance. From
1946 to 1979 it was known as Mount Eisenhower in honour of the World War II general
Dwight D. Eisenhower. Public pressure caused its original name to be restored, but a
pinnacle on the southeastern side of the mountain was named Eisenhower Tower. Located
nearby are the remains of Silver City, a 19th century mining settlement, and the Castle
Mountain Internment Camp in which persons deemed enemy aliens and suspected
enemy sympathizers were confined during World War I.
