Today, I am going to take to visit the Canadian Rockies and Glacier Park! --Normally we would travel on Fridays but this Friday, I have one special blog in mind so please come back and check my blog out. For now sit back and enjoy this journey!
Once we arrived at the Calgary airport, Caravan has arranged a shuttle to take us to our hotel at Hilton Garden Inn. We took the taxi to the downtown and stroll around. It was quite a city!
Then our journey start on visiting the Waterton Lakes National Park. We were in awe, Canadian lakes are so clear, literally we were able to see their reflections on the water.
And yes, we rode on this world famous, 'Red Jammer!"
Then we arrive at our unforgettable site, Banff National Park ...
And since were there, we wouldn't miss Jasper, a town must visit --visiting Canadian Rockies without visiting Lake Louise is like we were never there! And of course, you wouldn't want to miss the totem pole from Lake Louise :-)

And definitely, Maligne Lake!
|Enjoy a scenic morning drive to glacier-fed Maligne Lake, 14 miles long and ringed by dramatic snow-capped peaks.|
Afterward, the elk was agitated and started to stomp and OMG. we ran as fast as as we could! A good lesson to learn --respect someone's space and --yes, definitely the animals'!
Just when you think you have forgotten the ancient time... I am taking you back to the Ice Age --well, not quite, just a glimpse of what the Ice Age has left behind. And who can resist the temptation of ice cold water --wait! Not just any ice cold water --perhaps the eternal water!
Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the "Columbia Icefield’s Athabasca Glacier!"
|Drinking the eternal water --perhaps trying to preserve my youthfulness!|
|We were not skating ... trying not to fall into the cracked ice field...|
Until next stop,
