Some international mountains for #InternationalMountainDay . Guys, I remember the first real experience I had in the mountains like it was yesterday when I took my first trip to @glaciernps. The pure excitement of seeing those incredible peaks in person was like nothing else and it felt totally euphoric to be immersed in such an incredible place. Ever since then, I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with the mountains and I’ve spend all of my travels after that searching them out. They feed my soul, challenge me, bring me solitude, frustrate me, burn my lungs, almost bring me to tears, but then bring me some of the happiest memories that I have. They are my therapy, the place I go when I feel lost, and the place I go when I’m on top of the world. There’s nothing quite like the mountains and I’m so glad I’m 4-6 hours in any direction from them. I can’t wait to see even more mountains in 2019 🏔
345/365 🎄🚂 The #CPHolidayTrain easily makes the list for my 365-day positivity challenge! This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Holiday Train and it puts on a little Christmas concert with a pop-out stage and takes donations for the local food banks at each stop. There's two Holiday trains; one that travels across Canada and another that starts in Canada and travels through part of the US before returning to Canada.
It was a beautiful evening and good excuse to go for a walk to check it out.
Thanks @CanadianPacific for spreading some holiday cheer! ✌️
positivity challenge day 345
✨I have to say that I’m blessed, yes that’s the exact word...blessed to have and make friends around the globe. Besides having the opportunity of sharing a good laugh, a good meal and a good talk; they also give me the chance to explore more and not only a place, but to get to know and enjoy more about how much kindness exist among us. When nowadays traveling is a trend, I will tell you that traveling is what helps me see things from another perspective, a new and humble one of this world.
The Peyto Lake viewpoint in Banff National Park is a popular hike in the summer, but we think it looks even more stunning under a fresh blanket of snow! This family-friendly hike is only 2.6 kilometres round trip (1.6 miles) and offers stunning views from the Bow Summit lookout. Fall and early winter is a magical time to see ice-free glacier lakes surrounded by the snow-covered peaks of the Rocky Mountains. #ExploreCanada

Le point de vue sur le lac Peyto au parc national Banff est une randonnée populaire en été, mais nous sommes d’avis qu’elle est encore plus belle sous un manteau de neige! Cette randonnée de 2,6 km aller-retour, qui peut très bien se faire en famille, offre des paysages spectaculaires à partir du belvédère du sommet Bow. L’automne et le début de l’hiver sont une période féérique pour contempler l’eau bleue des lacs glaciaires et les pics enneigés des Rocheuses. #ExploreCanada

Today apparently is International Mountain Day via The UN... It’s kinda BS, as everyday is basically/should be a mountain day. Politics aside, here’s an inversion view from the top of Sulphur. Happens frequently in winter, but rare in summer (this was back in August 2015). Cherish, respect and enjoy the mountains 😎🌄
The peaks of the Rockies hold a special place in my heart, when I moved to Calgary home felt like a world away. Driving out to Banff and being surrounded by mountains was always such a comfort! This aerial sunrise is one of the most surreal experiences I’ve had in the mountains, happy International Mountain Day everyone! #MountainsMatter
