Alberta's Rocky Mountains in 100 Images

Snow capped peaks, pristine lakes, and groups of enthusiastic explorers set the scene in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. The area lends itself to adventure seekers and weekenders, nature enthusiasts and relaxed admirers. Alberta's Rockies are home to some of the most impressive scenery around, and the list of things to experience here is practically endless.

On a recent road trip, I drove the length of Alberta's Rockies from Waterton Lakes to Banff to Jasper. My goal was to photo journal the experience and capture a slice of some of the most notable attractions that the region has to offer. My 100 images are a mere introduction to some of what you'll find in Alberta's Rocky Mountains - the point is, I saw all of this in just one week.
