Million-dollar views. British Columbia’s Bugaboo Mountains were named after the word meaning to annoy or anger by the early 20th century gold prospectors who came up empty in the range, but the local vistas are worth their weight in precious metals. This past September Canadian Geographic and Canadian Mountain Holidays hosted a photography workshop at Bugaboo Lodge, nestled among the world-famous spires, and the photographers who participated have shared a selection of the best images they captured here. Million-dollar views, indeed.
