Canadian Rockies

This where I live and spend a lot of time enjoying the stunning nature. I am blessed to be able to have all of this beauty within an easy drive from my home. After visiting many mountain areas of the world, I feel that Western Canada is one of the most beautiful and wild mountain environments left on Earth. The following pages contain more detailed account of each individual area of the Canadian Rockies. The photos on each page are a summary of many trips and are updated quite regularly as I continue exploring my backyard. Click on each link to go to the specific page:
