The hubs and I were lucky enough to go on a pretty awesome vacation this summer to Alberta, Canada. It was my first time ever visiting Canada, and I can say for sure it won’t be the last!
We spent a few days hiking in the Banff area and it was breathtaking.
Well, okay, the first day was really dreary and we could pretty much just see the base of mountains as the rest was covered in rain clouds.
Thankfully the weather cleared up more and more as the days went on and we got to do some incredible hiking.
We did an incredibly difficult hike sort of by accident on the last big hiking day. Definitely the hardest hike I’ve ever done, mostly because the last kilometer or so was basically straight up the side of the mountain.
There aren’t really words to describe how beautiful it was at the top. We sat on the rocks on the side of the mountain, which continued soaring up behind us, and we could see for miles and miles.
Side note, that little light green patch toward the bottom right of the photo above is the area where we did our first day’s hiking in the rain. We were sitting in a spot that was most definitely covered by clouds on our first day.
Our final day in the area was gloriously sunny and beautiful. We took our time driving back to Calgary and views like this were around every corner.
I can’t wait to go back and explore much, much more. It was incredible.
