Story: This piece is inspired by the iconic Pyramid Mountain in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. When I lived in Jasper, one of my favourite things to do was to go for runs listening to my favourite DJ at the time, taking in the grandeaur of the local mountains. Pyramid Mountain is a mountain all the locals know well and is one of my favourites. It was named by James Hector in 1859 due to its appearance from the Athabasca River valley on the eastern side of the peak.
