After summiting Robertson Peak I turned my attention to Tallon.
I decided that since I wanted some exercise anyway I might as well bag the middle bump between Robertson and Tallon while I was in the area. It was only around 50-75 extra meters of height gain and was easier than side-hill grunting anyway.
The views were great as I easily followed the ridge and broke through the small cliff band on Tallon about half way along it.
The view from Tallon Peak was slightly different than Robertson - more of the Crowsnest Pass area and less of the Highwood Range. I especially liked the windmills and the Old Man Reservoir views.
On the way back to my car I stayed high on my left and walked over some of the grassy knobs that link to Robertson Peak.
A short but excellent early or late season objective. The driving in Southern Alberta is always special. I love the scenery and ranch land views.
