As someone who travels six or seven months out of every year I see a lot of impressive landscapes that really give me a sense of awe. Whether it’s looking into the deep Grand Canyon of Arizona, a magical beach in Southern Thailand or 3000 temples in the plains of Bagan, Myanmar, I’m astounded by how much beauty we have on this wonderful planet.
At the same time, travelling also makes me appreciate the beauty that resides just over an hour from where I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. If you’re from Canada or thinking to visit, you’ve likely heard of the Canadian Rockies or Banff National Park. Not only is it a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it’s also one of the most scenic areas in the world. It is insanely beautiful. Whether you visit in the summer months to catch the beautiful turquoise-colored lakes surrounded by lush green pine trees and towering mountains or the winter for that magically sparkling landscape of snow, Banff National Park will leave you impressed and in awe of natures beauty.
