Canadian Rockies surpassed my expectation.
After spending a lot of time in Yosemite it would be hard to impress me. My expectation was rather high. But dang! These Canadians have a pretty darn impressive mountain range here. We were impressed.
I was surprised at how easily accessible the scenery was. A lot of the scenic overlooks along the freeway between Jasper and Banff were literally off the freeway. You can gawk and snap dozens of pictures without even getting out of the car.
And people did.
Pull up. Roll the window down. Snap. Snap. Roll the window back up. Drive off.
It was a drive through national parks.
But that’s not the point of this post. I just want to share with you this picture that was taken along Parker Ridge Trail.
The first time we did this trail it was snowing and we couldn’t see 10 ft ahead of us, nevermind the surrounding view. We’re so glad we decided to give it another try on our way back.
The picture doesn’t do it justice, but hopefully you still get a sense of the scale of these mountains.
