A Photo Journal of the Canadian Rockies

Patricia Lake, Alberta

The Rocky Mountains are arguably Canada’s most famous and most beloved natural attraction, both by foreign visitors and locals. The impressive snowy peaks, turquoise lakes, local wildlife, and postcard views make the Rockies a year round destination where you’ll always have something left to explore.

To pique your interest, here are some of my favorite photos of the Canadian Rockies. All images were taken in the month of July, in case you were wondering about the weather (pack layers!).
