When you’re venturing to Alberta’s Canadian Rockies, the elevation isn’t what’s most likely to take your breath away.

Jasper National Park
All travel magazines say that you have to visit Jasper National Park at least once in a lifetime. In my case, once was not enough. I have visited and photographed this gorgeous park more than 16 times, and plan to come back every single year. It is one of my favorite places in the word.
Jasper National Park, established in 1907, is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies with 10,878 square kilometers of mountain wilderness. Jasper is the gentle giant of the Rockies. If you like majestic peaks, endless outdoor adventure, pristine wilderness and abundant wildlife, Jasper National Park should be on your itinerary.
Columbia Ice Field
The Columbia Ice Field is located in the Canadian Rockies astride the Continental Divide along the border of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, the ice field lies partly in the northwestern tip of Banff National Park and partly in the southern end of Jasper National Park.
