List Description

Canada has some spectacular and world-famous National Parks in well-known mountain areas, and this list is a first draft listing the highest points in all 42 current parks and reserves. In parks with boundaries that contain private land that has not yet been acquired by Parks Canada, the high point listed is the highest point on public land. For parks in Ontario or British Columbia, the provincial OBM and BC Basemap topographic data was used to find points, and for the remainder of the country, the NTS 1:50K map sheets were used.

Note that in several national parks, the terrain can be quite flat, and the spot listed here may not be entierly accurate. Indeed, for some parks, it may be impossible to determine the exact high point without professional surveying. If you are serious about a peak on this list, you should double-check the high point location with your own research before your trip.

This is a challenging list to complete--it would not be surprising if no one person climbs all these peaks for many years, if ever. You should check with park rangers to make sure that these points are open to the general public and get saftely information. Many of the peaks on this list are challenging and remote wilderness adventures that may feature technical mountaineering.

Acknowledgments:

Thanks to Terry Wheeler of Montreal, who helped determine several of these points and inspired the completion of the research for this list.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
