Glacier National Park and The Canadian Rockies

We had a terrific time in Montana's Glacier National Park as well as Banff and Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada recently. We hiked to some amazing lakes, glaciers and even a tea house perched high above that served an amazing assortment of teas! The wildlife in the parks did not disappoint either. We saw a grizzly bear, numerous black bears, elk, mountain goats, big horned sheep as well as deer, rabbits and those cute little chipmunks that always make me smile. It was a great vacation and I highly recommend it if you have never visited!

All of the above pictures were taken in Glacier National Park in Montana.

The pictures above were taken in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.

The pictures above were taken at Lake Louise and Lake Josephine near Banff, Alberta, Canada.  The hikes here provided breathtaking views of the lakes well worth the time!


  1. Ok, "BEAUTIFUL" is about all one can say about those pictures! What great shots and what a wonderful trip you must have had! I can almost feel that mountain air--cool and refreshing. Bring it on! Great that you could not only see beautiful sights but get some exhilarating exercise in the process. I know you have always wanted to go to Banff, so it's wonderful that you got to spend some quality time there!

  2. HI gorgeous pictures. I was in your area. We took a trip to California and drove your entre route 1 from San Fracisco down to Santa Monica. What a gorgeous state. Had a super vacation. We also visited Napa. I took so many pics. I think I will have to paint some nice pictures from my trip. Lots of inspiration!
