What’s one new thing you would like to do this year? For me, I’d like to see and photograph more night time sky phenomenon, like the Milky Way and northern lights. The best way to do that is to visit one of the many dark sky preserves in Canada.
In the part one, I talked about the ‘Ice’ portion of Fire and Ice: A Canadian Road Trip. Once we left the mountains, the weather changed, and we delved into the ‘Fire’ part of our journey. From Ice and snow to sand and badlands, this truly was a fire and ice road trip.
No, this won’t be a five-part (so far) novel by George R.R. Martin, but Fire and Ice is the best title to describe our Canadian road trip. One day we were in four feet of snow, the other we were standing atop of a dune. One day we were walking through grasslands, the other we were standing ashore counting icebergs.
(Updated 2019) With mountains that rise to touch the sky and water so blue and cold, there is no comparing the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Jasper National Park and Banff National Park are the pride and joy of the Canadian National Park system and see millions of visitors each year. Make sure you stop at these must-see places along the Icefields parkway on your next road trip through Jasper and Banff national parks.
