Three Canadian Parks Down - Four More To Go!

Glacier National Park
Yoho National Park - Hoodoos
Mount Revelstoke National Park
We have made it through British Columbia and three National Parks so far.. Mount Revelstoke National Park, Glacier National Park, and Yoho National Park. They are each unique and make you feel like you are definitely in the mountains with glaciers, sub-alpine layers and alpine layers of rock.

Hidden lakes break up the scenery and if you are up for a little adventure, there are always hiking trails. Even the trails marked "easy" require shoes with a little grip. The altitude can also be a challenge on the trails as well as the roots, rocks, boulders and one of my favorite descriptions "relentless switchbacks."

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending how you look at it, the only wildlife we have seen so far are a variety of birds and small animals such as squirrels and chipmunks. But now we have entered Alberta and Banff National Park. Next we will head up to Jasper National Park and then slowly make our way south.

Check out the new videos on our You Tube page to see a bear bugler in Glacier National Park, sunrise on Emerald Lake, the Takakkaw Falls, and the spiral tunnels in Yoho National Park.
