Hiking season begins! End of the trail at Rawson Lake in Kananaskis Country. It is a popular hike, with great views of the lake. Scenic, with some steeper sections in the middle, but overall a relatively easy trek. 📷@eriiicdubs  ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #albertatourism  #dailyviewalberta  #beautifuldestinations  #canadianphotography  #explorebanff  #rawsonlake  #amazing_pics  #earthshots  #travelalberta  #cangeo  #choosemountains  #optoutside  #artofvisuals  #outdoortones  #agameoftones  #natgeoyourshot  #beautifulmatters  #stayandwander  #allaboutadventures  #socality  #milliondollarvisuals  #splendid_shotz  #mybanff  #imagesofcanada  #banffnationalpark  #outdoortones  #canadiancreatives  #exploretocreate  #kananaskis 

It is always good to stop and smell the roses - or as this little pika is doing, stop and smell the columbines. Pikas are also called “Rock Rabbits” and have large round ears and lack a tail. They are well camouflaged , however, they can often be located by their high pitched “eep”. They can often be seen at the far end of Lake Louise and in the rock slides at Moraine Lake. Pikas are about as cute as they come! 📷@screaminggrizzly  ~ ~ ~ ~ #albertatourism  #travelalberta  #venturebeyond  #wildlife  #natgeoyourshot  #wildlifephotography  #pika  #outdoorphotography  #amazing_shots  #explorebanff  #lakelouise  #cuteanimals  #naturesfinest  #splendidanimals  #discoverwildlife  #wildplanet  #bbcearth  #theweatherchannel  #lonelyplanet  #optoutside  #mountainculture 

A mama bear and her three cubs-this photo was taken in May of last year. It won’t be long until we are seeing scenes like this again! 📷@mygrizzlyheart  ~ ~ ~ ~ #albertatourism  #jasper  #pursuitjasper  #travelalberta  #wildlife  #natgeoyourshot  #wildlifephotography  #bears  #grizzly  #outdoorphotography  #amazing_shots  #banff  #cuteanimals  #naturesfinest  #splendidanimals  #bearsofinstagram  #discoverwildlife  #wildplanet  #bbcearth  #theweatherchannel 

Get up close and personal with the Athabasca Glacier, located in Jasper National Park. It is one of the six “toes” of the Columbia Icefield. This glacier is as fascinating as it is fragile, and it is receding at the rate of about 5 meters per year. Many certified guides are available to take you on an adventure to traverse the surface of the glacier, or for the more adventurous, into an ice cave. And as Eric says “ There isn’t much that will make you feel as insignificant as glacial ice. The earth is a gift. Explore it. Care for it”. 📷@gotmountains  ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #albertatourism  #explorebanff  #explorealberta  #jasper  #venturebeyond  #glaciers  #athabascaglacier  #amazing_shots  #agameoftones  #optoutside  #caving  #icecaves  #bbcearth  #sharecangeo  #canadasworld  #ice  #peace  #adventure  #travelalberta  #wanderlust  #travelphotography  #icecave  #cave  #snowday  #destinationcanada
