Those make me homesick…I’m from Calgary and since moving to Ontario, the only thing I miss more than the mountains is my family.

I live in Calgary and the best part of living in Calgary is being able to hop on the highway and drive for an hour and be in Banff. It’s gorgeous!

We also went away for a weekend this winter to Emerald Lake and it was even gorgeous in the dead of winter!

Oh I love these pictures! I went to Banff on my honeymoon…a three week long roadtrip to Canada (as one of my Canadian bridesmaids was getting married in Canada three weeks after my wedding and I was to be a bridesmaid in hers). Worked out great! We LOVED Banff! Absolutely breathtaking! Hope to return someday, indeed! Thanks for bringing back some incredible memories!
Love the shots you took of the water, especially. So crystal clear! You are an excellent photographer!

That place is gorgeous! Where I live it’s so crowded and busy. I feel like I just took a nice mental break. If only it looked like that outside my door. I think I’d be way less stressed!

I’m going there in 5 weeks!!!!!!! I’ve never been out west and I can’t WAIT to see (and hike in) the mountains.

Don’t hate me, but the bottom pics just got me excited to eat hamburgers there :P

Beautiful pictures.
No human constructed building can be compared to the beauty of “pure nature”.
I just have to say this : cows in the middle of the road remind me so much of driving in rural areas of Norway, haha!
I loved that when I was younger. My father got really stressed, but I thought it was the funniest part of the car-ride :)

Any suggestions of great places to live out West? Particularly in BC? Great oudoors place…but not too isolated…but not too much traffic crap…and good for a “young” person…?!
