Valley of Ten Peaks
Valley of the Ten Peaks is a valley in Banff National Park in Alberta Canada which is crowned by ten notable peaks and also includes Moraine Lake. The valley can be reached by following the Moraine Lake road near Lake Louise. The ten peaks were originally named by Samuel Allen an early explorer of the region who simply referred to them by using the numerals from one to ten in the Stoney First Nations Language. He may have learnt the terms from his Native American guides who helped him with the horses. The Nakoda - also known as the Stoney Indians - is a tribe whose culture and dialect are closely related to that of the Assiniboine First Nation from whom they are believed to have separated in the mid-1700s and who roamed large parts of the prairies and mountains of western Alberta well into British Columbia. The secluded Valley of the Ten Peaks was part of their original homeland. Gradually though all but three of the mountains were renamed in honour of noteworthy individuals including Allen himself.
