Yoho – Banff – Jasper Trip

So many places to offroad, and hike! 🌲 All international borders are still closed because of COVID19 so focusing on exploration of areas around Canada. Definitely Rockies are my favourite ones! Visited three beautiful National Parks during that trip, and for sure looking forward to go back there soon.

Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park, established in 1885. Located in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, 110–180 kilometres west of Calgary, Banff encompasses 6,641 square kilometres of mountainous terrain, with many glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes. ~wiki

Jasper National Park is extending over 11,000 square kilometres, it’s the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies and part of UNESCO’s Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. ~pc.gc.ca

Yoho National Park is a national park of Canada in British Columbia. It is located within the Rocky Mountains along the western slope of the Continental Divide of the Americas in southeastern British Columbia. ~wiki

 

 

Carpenter Lake Offroad

What a weekend! What a trip! The whole gang going off-roading. Nothing better than the weekend in the wilderness. 🌲  Carpenter Lake is the largest of the three reservoirs of the Bridge River Power Project, which is located in the mountains west of Lillooet, British Columbia. The lake is about 185 kilometres north of the province’s major city of Vancouver and is formed by the 1951 diversion of the Bridge River by Terzaghi Dam into Seton Lake via a tunnel through Mission Mountain, which separates the Seton and Bridge drainages. Several ranches and homesteads in the broad serpentine of the upper Bridge River basin were flooded out by the hydro project, which changed the character of the upper valley forever. ~wiki

“Carpenter Lake is about 50 kilometres in length, although its upper reaches beyond the flooded gold mining town of Minto City are usually mudflat due to fluctuations in the level of the reservoir. Its total area approaches 50 square kilometres.”
