Backpacking in Canada

Stumbled upon one more nice backpacking web site Yamnushka.

Have no idea where this name comes from. Sounds a bit Russian.

Ah, found it:

Yamnuska” is the popular name for the mountain guarding the Bow River’s exit from the Rockies. This Stoney Indian word means ‘flat faced mountain’ and it is that ‘flat face’ looming above the Bow Valley that is famous for its many fine climbing routes.

Interesting.
