After all that fried food at the stampede, you may feel the need for some fresh air. Calgary’s urban greenery is nothing compared to the glorious Rocky Mountains that sit at its door. This major mountain range stretches from British Columbia to New Mexico. Skiing, hiking, rock climbing and camping await you in these billion year old mountains and many of towns along the way are famous in their own regard. In Banff National Park, the lakes will stun you with their abnormally blue water, which is caused by silt-like rock flour that is continually carried into the lakes by melting glaciers. Head west on the Trans-Canada highway, you can’t miss them.
