Canadian Rockies, August 2017 - U of I EXPLORERS Photolog

Our story...

On August 11th, 22 Illini venture north to Canada, and our adventure there was truly unforgettable. The dramatic alpine landscapes of the Canadian Rockies, the scenic paradise, and the crisp mountain air (I can still taste the pine and wildflowers!) made this journey memorable. We did everything this region of Canada had to offer: we visited waterfalls, trekked across centuries-old Columbia Icefields, saw jewel-toned lakes, and even observed distant galaxies in the Jasper Dark Sky Preserve. Our hearts and eyes are full of beauty this region offered us, and we hope you get a chance to view our memories here.
