Welcome to the Canadian Rockies page! The Canadian Rockies is the destination that I’ve been wanting to visit for a while. Our plan to visit this summer unfortunately coincides with the 150th anniversary of Parks Canada with free entrance for an entire year. So there will be crowds, loads of people, more so than what the parks usually experience every summer. What this meant was, in addition to dealing with the crowd when we are there, the planning of this trip was challenging. We went through the national parks’ campground reservation in January. I posted about what we learned here. All the campgrounds that we will be staying in the Rockies are now finalized.
Several fellow bloggers whom I follow have kindly shared their favorite hikes and tips. I am compiling potential hikes that we would like to do, weather and our physical condition permitting. The list is growing. I added them on a map so that we can see where they are in relation to our campgrounds. This map is being updated as I discover new hikes. We may not have enough time to do all of them in this trip, but I’m sure this won’t be our last visit to the Rockies.
