The Rocky Mountains, commonly known as the Rockies, are a major mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,830 km) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the southwestern United States. Within the North American Cordillera, the Rockies are somewhat distinct from the Pacific Coast Ranges and the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada which all lie farther to the west. The Yeti, or "Abominable Snowman" is an anthropomorphic creature of folklore in the Himalayan region, especially Nepal, India and Tibet. It is regarded within the scientific community as a legendary be due to the absence of incontrovertible physical evidence of its existence. It has many equivalents in other parts of the world whose Bigfoot in North America or almasty in the Caucasus.

Breathtaking Canadian Rockies (Places to see) Banff National Park Lake Louise: This beautiful turquoise lake rimmed with mountains is a Canadian icon. Accessible year-round, but the lake may be frozen from late October to early June; the classic turquoise color may not develop until around July. A paved pathway (wheelchair, stroller/pushchair accessible) follows the lakeshore for a considerable distance. Moraine Lake: This magnificent glacial lake and its Valley of the Ten Peaks graced Canada's. Many visitors feel it is more beautiful than its famous neighbor, Lake Louise, a 20-minute drive away. An easy walk (0.5km / 0.3 mi, 15-20 minutes of walking) leads to the Rock pile viewpoint. The Moraine Lake road is closed to vehicles from early October to late May; exact dates are weather-dependent. Also, water levels in Moraine Lake can be quite low until mid-June. Johnston Canyon: Johnston Creek rushes over two waterfalls in this narrow stone canyon. The Lower Falls is accessed through a dramatic natural tunnel; the Upper Falls has a dramatic high viewpoint. The paved trail to the Lower Falls is wheelchair and stroller/pushchair accessible trail. Lake Louise Gondola (year-round): Sightseeing is possible in any season at The Lake Louise Ski Resort (temporary closure in October). Summer operations include the option of an open chair or enclosed gondola with a viewing platform, interpretive centre and full service restaurant at the gondola top. Scenic highlights include Lake Louise, Mt Temple and Victoria Glacier. Lake Minnewanka, Lake Minnewanka boat cruise, Lake Minnewanka driving loop: Lake Minnewanka is a glacial lake surrounded by mountains. Apart from this you also can enjoy in the following places. Sulphur Mountain Surprise Corner Lake castle Vermilion Lakes: Yoho National Park Yoho is known as a beautiful area for hiking. Lake O'Hara is the best-known hiking area, but the area of the many waterfalls is also magnificent. Takakkaw Falls (late June-early October) Emerald Lake Lake O'Hara Bow Lake Peyto Lake, Columbia Ice field, Tangle Falls, Athabasca Falls Jasper National Park Mt Edith Cavell Jasper Tramway Maligne Canyon Medicine Lake (viewpoint at north end of lake) Maligne Lake/Maligne Lake boat cruise Mount Robson Provincial Park This is British Columbia's second-oldest provincial park and the site of Mount Robson (12972 ft), the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. The provincial park starts at the west boundary of Jasper National Park, on the Yellowhead Highway. The Mount Robson viewpoint is about an hour's drive from Jasper.
The rocks in the Rocky Mountains were formed before the mountains were raised by tectonic forces. The oldest rock is Precambrian metamorphic rock that forms the core of the North American continent. There is also Precambrian sedimentary argillite, dating back to 1.7 billion years ago. During the Paleozoic, western North America lay underneath a shallow sea, which deposited many kilometers of limestone and dolomite. In the southern Rocky Mountains, near present-day Colorado, these ancestral rocks were disturbed by mountain building approximately 300 Ma, during the Pennsylvanian. This mountain building produced the Ancestral Rocky Mountains. They consisted largely of Precambrian metamorphic rock forced upward through layers of the limestone laid down in the shallow sea. The mountains eroded throughout the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic, leaving extensive deposits of sedimentary rock. Terranes started to collide with the western edge of North America in the Mississippian (approximately 350 million years ago), causing the Antler orogeny. For 270 million years, the effects of plate collisions were focused very near the edge of the North American plate boundary, far to the west of the Rocky Mountain region. It was not until 80 Ma that these effects began to reach the Rockies. The current Rocky Mountains were raised in the Laramide orogeny from between 80 to 55 Ma. For the Canadian Rockies, the mountain building is analogous to a rug being pushed on a hardwood floor: the rug bunches up and forms wrinkles (mountains). In Canada, the terranes and subduction are the foot pushing the rug, the ancestral rocks are the rug, and the Canadian Shield in the middle of the continent is the hardwood floor. Further south, the growth of the Rocky Mountains in the United States was probably caused by an unusual subduction, where the Farallon plate dove at a shallow angle below the North American plate. This low angle moved the focus of melting and mountain building much farther inland than the normal 200 to 300 miles (300 to 500 km). It is postulated that the shallow angle of the subducting plate greatly increased the friction and other interactions with the thick continental mass above it. Tremendous thrusts piled sheets of crust on top of each other, building the extraordinarily broad, high Rocky Mountain range.

Travel video about destination Canadian Rocky Mountains. The most spectacular sights in the Canadian Rocky Mountains are to be found mainly in its Northern region.Over the course of millions of years it was here that a unique and fascinating world of stone developed, abundant with natural beauty and awesome power. From the top of these mountains there's a breathtaking panorama of surrounding peaks, glaciers and never ending valleys of stone.With unfettered power and in a wild cascade the freezing molten ice of the glacier runs through narrow gorges until it finally reaches the valleys below. Even the most massive of these ancient rocks was unable to prevent the relentless journey of the molten ice. The rivers pass beautiful dark forests that contain an immense variety of wildlife.The sparkling splendour of the Columbia Icefields covers an area of three hundred square kilometres and dates back to the last Ice Age and in some areas the ice is up to six hundred metres thick.The incredible power of various past landslides is evident along the shorelines of a number of mountain lakes including uprooted trees, wooden skeletons crushed by heavy masses of scree. In the course of time various of the trees became petrified and have thus been preserved forever.The beauty of the Rocky Mountains is a veritable wonder of nature and one of the last natural paradises on Earth.

A tour of some popular spots in the Canadian Rockies, chief among them are Banff National Park in the Province of Alberta and Yoho National Park in the Province of British Columbia. Filmed in June 2011. The main featured spots in the video are: Town of Banff and surrounding area, Lake Louise, Town of Golden and surrounding area, Johnston Canyon etc... The Town of Banff was the first municipality to incorporate within a Canadian national park. It is a resort town and one of Canada's most popular tourist destinations, known for its mountainous surroundings and hot springs. It is a destination for outdoor sports and features extensive hiking, biking, scrambling and skiing. Lake Louise is a glacial lake within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. Fairmont's Chateau Lake Louise, one of Canada's grand railway hotels, is located on Lake Louise's eastern shore. It is a luxury resort hotel built in the early decades of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway. http://www.fairmont.com/lake-louise/ Johnston Creek is a tributary of the Bow River in Canada's Rocky Mountains. The creek is located in Banff National Park. A popular hiking trail follows the canyon and leads to a meadow within the Johnston Valley above the canyon. The first part of the trail consists of a constructed walkway with safety rails and bridges, while the last part of the trail is natural and more rugged. Within the meadow are the Ink Pots, which are six blue-green spring-fed pools. Ice climbing is a popular activity on the frozen waterfalls in winter. http://www.johnstoncanyon.com/ I've had a great time visiting Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre in the vicinity of the town of Golden. This wolf sanctuary and it's instructors, armed with their wealth of knowledge, give the centres' visitors a true depiction of these majestic and reclusive creatures. http://www.northernlightswildlife.com/ I've also had the pleasure of spending the night at the Mount 7 Lodges near golden BC. The hosts were splendid as well as the accomodation. The views...spectacular! http://www.mount7lodges.com/ Unfortunately, the weather during the time of the shoot was less than perfect with extended periods of cloudiness and rain. However, even under those conditions, a visit is highly recommended!
