My friend Adam and I joked about how the Rockies are exhausting — not because of all the physical activity, but because you’re constantly in awe and shock every time you turn a corner. You roll down the car windows and stick your camera out and scream, “LOOK AT THAT MOUNTAIN ERMAGHERD!!!” It’ll happen five times in ten minutes and you’ll want to crawl into bed and sleep for years.
I spent a fair bit of time here last summer, but the Rockies never get old. I know I say “I could live here a lot” about many places, but there are a handful of Canadian places where I can truly see myself settling into: Newfoundland, Montreal, and the Banff/Calgary area.
