Pictures taken in Rocky Mountains - Canada…Banff and Kananaskis..

Some of the best kept secrets in the Rocky Mountains are hidden in the valleys directly south of Canmore. These valleys are full of natural history that includes the Stoney Indians, Captain John Palliser, and many of the early pioneers who discovered Canada’s National Parks.

For a great trip from Calgary or Canmore, head to Highway 40 South, the gateway to Kananaskis Country. Kananaskis Country is a massive collection of Provincial Parks, over 4000 square kilometres. Each park is designated for different activities, from quiet solitude to off-road motorized sports.

To do a complete circuit of the Kananaskis Valley that takes you back to Canmore, try the spectacular backcountry Smith Dorrien/Spray Lake road. It’s a wildlife corridor second to none. Access this road after you have visited Peter Lougheed Provincial Park and the large North and South Kananaskis Lakes.
