Thanks to our friends @proofyyc for this beautiful shot of @thewildalps vodka, and the history lesson on such a versatile spirit. Head down to see what their wicked bartenders can do with something you maybe didn’t think could be so creative.
This spectacular peak in the Canadian Rockies is known as Cascade Mountain located in the Bow River Valley of #banffnationalpark, in the province of Alberta 🇨🇦 . I took this photo on the popular Highway 1 as we made our way to Banff from its neighbor town, Canmore 📸 🛣 . This iconic mountain overlooks the town of Banff, Lake Minnewanka and gives a 360 degree view of the surrounding Rocky Mountains! Simply stunning!! . Adventurous hikers like to make their way up this mountain in what is considered a strenuous hike that takes approximately 9 hours. Courageous! 😮🙊🙌🏼 . As I sit here and prepare for this day, I can’t help but feel a sense of gratitude for the family, dear friends, colleagues, hobbies and opportunities to travel that I currently have. I keep thinking how important it is to focus on the activities and people that make us happy, and filter out the avoidable opposites. . Truth be told, we often make our lives complicated when it’s really quite simple: Find what it is that makes you happy and spend more time doing it. Find who it is that makes you smile and spend more time with them ❤️ . When other people treat you poorly, keep being you. Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are. Don’t let the silly little dramas of each day get you down either. Stay positive when negativity surrounds you. Keep calm and carry on ➡️ . Always remember: It takes one positive thought to overpower an entire array of negative thoughts ✨ . #travelalberta#explorealberta @travelalberta #explorecanada#parkscanada#canada#canada🍁 #canadianrockies#hoponbanff#albertacanada#banffnationalpark#banff#banffcanada#cascademountain#imagesofcanada#instatravel#enjoycanada
This summer we ventured to Banff National Park, in Canada, to discover it's majestic mountains, turquoise lakes, and soothing hot springs. While there we saw lots of wildlife, including a mama Grizzly Bear and her two cubs at Lake Louise. We stood in awe watching them peacefully graze just 100 feet from us. One bear cub lifted a boulder as if it were a mere pebble. The other cub saw people riding on horseback and playfully began to chase them! Momma Grizzly went after him. (Swipe ⬅️ to see them in the next frame. Look closely at the top left and you'll see the people on horseback in the background.) Can you imagine being chased by a grizzly bear? He soon quit his antics, and went back to his dinner, but not before they gave everyone a scare! The park rangers stood ready and armed with tranquilizers to protect the tourist. Thankfully the tranquilizers were not necessary. Here is a quick snippet of that day. I'm so glad everything ended well! Seeing that family of wild bears in their natural habitat is an experience we'll never forget! Now it's your turn!
