I was really excited to see this awesome view for the first time. Even though I have been on Collembola's ridges three times before, this was my first time on the true (north) summit.The high point on the brown ridge is as far as I got last time I tried as the crux had too much snow to be done safely. Pigeon Mountain's two different colored summits can be seen just beyond.Peak 1 of Mount Lougheed looks fabulous from this angle.The Jubilee Tarns look very cool from up here. I especially like the island and huge boulders in the shore.Yamnuska is visible on the right just above McGillivray's north ridge. I really liked the lighting on its verticals cliffs.I have said it before, but I really love the way Mount Lougheed looks from Collembola. Peak Two (the ramp-shaped mountain) looks like it would have been dry enough to climb.It was such an amazing day that I decided to head over to the south summit even though I had been up it before. The cliffs looked impenetrable, but I found a weakness on the left.Here is a more comprehensive view of the Jubilee Tarns basin. Mount Allan towers above with Mount Sparrowhawk, Wind Mountain, and the three peaks of Mount Lougheed beyond.This was the view coming down the south peak. On the extreme left are The Fortress, Ribbon Peak, and Mount Bogart.Mount Kidd rises above Olympic Summit in this view to the south. The Centennial Ridge Trail goes along the top of Olympic Summit.This is probably my favorite photo of the day. Even though the mountains are mostly back lit, I really like the feel of this shot.Mount Lorette has some of the craziest strata of any peak in this area. This was the view from near the bottom of Nakiska Ski Hill
