With summer road trip season fast approaching, we’re re-publishing the post from a few years ago. In our completely biased opinion, there is no better place for a road trip than the Canadian Rockies in Alberta and British Columbia (read about the best road trip from Vancouver for first time visitors).
Photos from Alberta’s Canadian Rockies
The best part about these Canadian Rockies landscapes is that they’re easily accessible, so you don’t have to spend hours trekking deep into the mountains to experience Alberta’s magic. This is very important when traveling with an infant and toddler.
Today, we’d like to share our favourite landscape photos from Alberta’s Canadian Rockies.
