Bucket List Worthy
Canada’s Rocky Mountains are home to some of the most spectacular views in the world. The names of the five national parks located in this majestic range carry the same weight in some circles as the country’s most beloved hockey players do in others. The parks’ eclectic mountain landscape, with their jagged peaks and U-shaped valleys, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. And while we certainly respect the slightly rounded peaks and snaky V-shaped valleys of our neighbors to the south, we can’t help but feel–especially, after looking at these gorgeous images–that the Canadian Rocky Mountains are the best Rockies.
