1. Is dale/valley the correct term?

  2. I chanced on this picture here. The putative photographer captioned

Scenic hiking views from Sunrise Hill and in Kananaskis Country Alberta Canada

but Googling Sunrise Hill yielded a street with suburban McMansions.

  • I found quite a lot of information by asking Mr Google "sunrise hill hike alberta" which even brings up the same image you show. Apparently Sunrise Hill is aka Rainy Summit. – Weather Vane Sep 10 '18 at 19:03
  • By the way, "dale" is a synonym for valley, but especially a broad valley. – user79534 Sep 10 '18 at 20:47

According to Google Maps, this photo was taken at the Powderface Ridge, next to the Sunrise Hill.

The Sunrise Hill according to this page is south-east of the Powderface Ridge. However, it's not shown in Google Maps. Here's a screenshot from Google Maps that shows the location of the Sunrise Hill (I added the text):

The valley you see in the photo is called Elbow Valley.
