    Hiking to Eiffel Peak Summit - Banff - Canadian Rockies on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Gorgeous fall hiking in the Canadian Rockies! It’s my favorite time of year when you get conditions like this. Larch Valley is an extremenly popular hike at this time of year when people enjoy the spectacular golden larches.  That larch on the right will be golden yellow in another week or so. For a higher perspective “go left” and up that nice ramp to the summit of Eiffel Peak. It’s about 7 kilometers and 1250 meters of elevation gain with some moderate scrambling near the summit. The 360 degree views from this summit is one of my favorites (of about 40 peaks I’ve had the good fortune to stand upon).

    Backcountry Mountain Road - Kananaskis Alberta - Canadian Rockies on Flickr.Via Flickr:
What if your commute to work was along this road? You would probably see all kinds of wildlife under many different weather conditions throughout the year. Instead of being part of a mad rush of humanity on busy roads you would have the scenes of nature charging your body with positive energy for the day. Sadly (for us) there are few jobs that would take you along this road… but lucky for this environment.
