Maryam Rahimi Blogs!
I'm ashamed to say this but here it goes. I never thought much about travelling through Canada for vacation. I always thought nature would bore me and oh boy was I in for a rude wild and wonderful awakening. I am so grateful for this discovery and I cannot wait to go back. Canada may not be known for glitz and glory, but it sure is one of the most beautiful and breathtaking places on earth.
Stunning Jasper National Park: my favourite place in Canada!
As the melt water from a glacier that feeds a lake starts to flow in the spring time, it carries with it glacier silt or rock flour. The silt is created when rocks underneath the surface of the ice are grinding from the movement of the glacier. The rock flour is very light and stays suspended in the lake water for a long time. The sunlight that reflects off this rock flour is what gives the lakes their spectacular turquoise blue or green colour.
Banff National Park
Did you know Banff National Park is Canada's oldest national park? It was established in 1885 in the Rocky Mountains. This park is about 130 kilometres west of Calgary in the province of Alberta, so shame on you Calgarians if you haven't been here yet!
Scenery, scenery, scenery...
Dinosaur Provincial Park
Dinosaur Provincial Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located about two-and-a-half hours drive southeast of Calgary, Visiting Dinosaur Provincial Park is like stepping into another world. The whole experience was surreal and one I have never felt before. This is where the dinosaurs roamed 70 million years ago!!!
