Experience The Mountain Parks Blog
...all about the Alberta-to-British Columbia mountain parks, including life in and around the parks. Not all our news and stories are here, though, so you might want to check our news section and Bob's "tweets" —conveniently placed in the upper right of each page.
Rosemarie Wrobel, of Calgary, Alberta, for the above video submission. The text she sent us along is the following: "Join us as we experience the mountain parks in Kananaskis Country and Banff and Yoho National Parks: hiking, cycling, kayaking, photography, snowshoeing and a helicopter ride."
Rosemarie won a portable campfire courtesy of Campfire In A Can with an approximate retail value of $330.
The above trailer is titled "RWC". It means "Reconnecting with Canada".
As they put it: "A crew of four brave souls, two motorcycles and support, battle the elements, and their own wits, as they cross northern Canada to Tuktoyaktuk. 10,000 kilometres of winter conditions, ice roads and mind numbing adventure. This is: The North."
Quite an adventure, a life story, and beautiful images, thank you folks!
The video we're showing you here is the one Bob "tweeted" about on January 25, 2012.This is a 27 min. on Alberta Parks (not all nationals though, as they are highlighting Alberta Provincial Parks as well) from south to north. It was aired on ARD a premium German TV Channel on January 15, 2012.
Sorry, we don't have the English translation, but the storyline says: "When you hear the name Banff and Jasper you think imposing mountains, turquoise lakes and on gigantic glaciers. Every year it attracts thousands of people in the finest National Parks of Canada. They come to hike, to rafting, cruising with their bikes or just to enjoy the incredible vastness and silence of the Rocky Mountains."
