Banff National Park

In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park and the world’s third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometers (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the world’s premier destination spots – from Parks Canada.

  1. you are amazing, I am almost 60 and had my first trip to the rockies, did tangle ridge, the onion, hilda, and a lot more. I wanted to do this stuff all of my life, being born poor and female and abandoned with 2 babies got in the way.

    • Wow. Life can get in the way of adventures can’t it? Or maybe all those challenges are a much more important part of the overall adventure of our lives? I’m so glad you are getting out to the Rockies now – you have many years of enjoyment to look forward to still! 😉
