About the location

Banff National Park (aka: the Canadian Rocky Mountains) is known for its turquoise blue lakes created by glacier waters, glorious mountains, hiking, and so much more. 

This was an all out hiking extravaganza, so there are plenty of details about hiking locations, how the time of year affects certain places you can and cannot get to, must-have hiking gear, and plenty of accommodation + food options.
