You have to pay attention KW. The Sand Hills was already guessed, and there is already one to figure out.

Can we try to stick to the proposed rules kw? It becomes confusing when there are multiple threads going at once and this is the second time you've done this.

It's not the Elizabeth Parker Hut, but, once again you're on the right track.

So it's in the Lake O'hara area then? I assume it's not Lake O'Hara Lodge, it's right off the lake I think. I'm really out of ideas after that.

It's not the Lake O'Hara area, it's related to the huts in a different way.

In these two pics posted by Jeremy Haak - that's Conrad Kain Hut in the Bugaboo Provincial Park, which is northwest of Radium Hot Springs. The mountain shown is called Snowpatch Spire.

This didn't take me very long to figure this one out.

Yep, it's the Conrad Kain Hut (an Alpine Club of Canada hut, that's the link with the other huts Calgarian). It's a common staging point for a lot of climbing in the area. I haven't been myself, but would love to go.

I'm actually surprised you didn't get it Calgarian, I always consider it to be the most famous of the ACC huts, but that might simply be due to my interesting in rock climbing.

I guess it's CanadianCentaur's turn now? Unless he wants to give it up for Calgarian who got kw5150's.

I heard about the other ones on a PBS show I watched, and I know a guy who's been to a couple.

Good one, that was pretty tough.

Here's one for you all to guess!

And, yes, that's in Canada! Unfortunately, that's the best resolution.

mount Edziza or Mount Edziza provincial park.

Edit: and I think the distinct formation in the top left of the photo is Eve's Cone.

Damn, I didn't think someone would guess right so fast!

Suburbanite is right - that's the northern end of the Mt. Edziza volcanic complex in Northern BC.

Those lava flows are geologically quite recent, definitely erupted after the last ice age ended about 10,000 years ago. The most recent eruption there might have occurred only around 1,000 years ago.
