Banff National Park is Canada's first national park, a summer resort. Located in the southwestern part of Alberta, in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. Established in 1885, with an area of 6,666 square kilometers. There are a series of icy peaks, glaciers, ice fields, glacial lakes and alpine grasslands, hot springs and other landscapes, and its peaks and peaks are the highest in the North American continent. Lake Louise in the middle of the park, the scenery is particularly good, the lake with the light depth, from blue to green, the lake is transparent, Emerald Lake is another beautiful place more quiet than Lake Louise. Along the Rocky Mountains, there are many such glacial lakes, which are like a string of pearls, which illuminate the quiet mountains. In winter and summer, Banff has a very different view. In summer, lakes are rowed for boating, while in winter, skiing and other snow and ice are important.
Arriving at the long-awaited Banff, I met the first snow of this year. Although it was very cold, the scenery was too beautiful. Take a deep breath with me in Banff.
Figure 1 is Barrier Lake, close to Calgary, the scenery is also very good, although the scenery here is not as famous as Lake Louise, but each lake is so wonderful, not inferior.
