UNESCO World Heritage Site #98: Canadian Rocky Mountian Parks

Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks: My 98th UNESCO World Heritage Site

From the World Heritage inscription for Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks:

The contiguous national parks of Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho, as well as the Mount Robson, Mount Assiniboine and Hamber provincial parks, studded with mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves, form a striking mountain landscape. The Burgess Shale fossil site, well known for its fossil remains of soft-bodied marine animals, is also found there.

The Canadian Rockies are a special place. I visited Banff but would return to explore some of the other parks in a heartbeat. The above photo was taken at Lake Louise.
