In June 2022, we traveled to the Canadian Rockies, touring Banff, Jasper, Vancouver and Victoria. Trip highlights included Bow River Falls and Lake Louise in Banff National Park. We visited the Columbia Icefield, one of the largest non-polar ice fields in the world. We walked onto the Athabasca Glacier and explored Jasper National Park, the largest national park within Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. In Vancouver we enjoyed a Vancouver highlights tour; and in Victoria we visited the famous Butchart Gardens. This trip was an unforgettable travel experience.
