Camping in the Canadian Rockies
11 nights in a tent + 2 National Parks + 97 miles hiked + 21,784' elevation gain during hikes + 3 showers + 1 load of laundry + 1,190 miles driven = 1 amazing trip!
Our first campsite in Banff National Park was at Castle Mountain Campground so we hiked partway up Castle Mountain for a great view of the valley.
A beautiful hike among glaciers and gorgeous lakes.
Two great hikes in one day!
The park said that the trail might be snowy at higher elevations. They were right!
A beautiful hike through verdant meadows.
A monster hike with stellar views on Canada Day.
Moving North to the Columbia Icefields.

A short hike to a very windy summit. Then we soaked in hot springs.
A beautiful farewell to Jasper.
