Banff National Park is not only Canada's first National Park, but it also gave birth to the National park system. The scenery in Banff is enough to take your breath away, especially when the snow starts to fall and creates a winter wonderland. With it's towering snowy peaks, sapphire waters, and lush meadows abundant with wildlife, Banff is filled with postcard perfect images. The Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park emerge sharply up through the landscape, and tower as high as 11,850 feet overhead. The mountain range has a sprinkling of glaciers, endless fields of aspen trees and gorgeous blue lakes are seemingly around every corner, so you better pack those extra memory cards and batteries for all the amazing scenery you will be treated to.
