Maligne Lake, Improvement District No. 12, AB T0E, Canada
This was my much-deserved reward after quite a steep hike up from Maligne Lake in Jasper National Forest to the renowned summer wildflower displays of the alpine meadows of Opal Hills Loop. The hike is probably 1 1/2 hours one-way from the lake...

Alberta 93A, Jasper, AB T0E 1E0, Canada
Yet another of the many rainbows we spotted during our time in Jasper National Park, at the most gorgeous section, at least in my opinion, of Athabasca Falls. Located at the southern end of a northern spur off Highway 93, the falls are crawling...

Johnson Creek, III, WV, USA
A beautiful, albeit popular, canyon walk along exciting catwalks with two waterfalls and jewel colored pools to look forward to along the way. Go early for smaller crowds and enjoy the beautiful colors of Johnston Canyon.

It had been a while since we had taken a holiday outside of a city. This made us happy.

311 Cave Ave, Banff, AB T0L 0C0, Canada
You can smell the minerals in the water as you unload the family at the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, the place where two railway surveyors spotted a cave and series of natural hot springs back in 1883. They were helping to build the...

405 Spray Ave, Banff, AB T1L 1J4, Canada
Visiting the legendary Fairmont Banff Springs Resort is like walking through a history lesson. Kids will love all the pictures of the hotel’s old days, as well as the castle-like feeling of the stone halls and archways, built over 125 years...

700 Tunnel Mountain Rd, Banff, AB T0L, Canada
Although Buffalo Mountain Lodge is only minutes from downtown Banff, its location on Tunnel Mountain is surrounded by wilderness. Some of the best wildlife viewing in Western Canada is within walking distance of the front doors. It’s common...

Whether it’s after a long summer hike or a winter day on the ski slopes, there is no better place to relax than the Deer Lodge rooftop hot tub. It has a clear view of the Victoria Glacier across Lake Louise. The hotel is gorgeous in a rustic...

Moraine Lake, Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada
Moraine Lake was part of my trek down through Jasper and Banff National Parks of the Canadian Rockies back in July of this year. This lake might be one of the most beautiful lakes I've ever seen in my life. It's almost a surreal jade color due to...

Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada
Alberta, Canada is an all-seasons destination thanks to an abundance of rugged beauty. In the winter months though skiing seems to take center stage, which is a shame since there are so many other great adventure activities in the region. One of...

AB-93, Alberta, Canada
Not sure where to go from Glacier National Park, we decided to follow the advice of two Canadian residents whom we just met at a hostel in Montana. They insisted we follow Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada....

Peyto Lake, Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada
This is another good stop along the Icefields Parkway in Alberta. It's a short hike from the parking area to this lookout. (Not sure how long it is, but my 5-year-old son managed it, walking on top of snow the whole way.) In the summer, the lake...

Jasper, AB T0E 1E0, Canada
The sky above Jasper National Park comes alive at night. Celebrated as a Dark Sky Preserve, the national park is one of the best places in the world to stargaze. Light pollution is that orange hue often seen above cities, which is caused by the...

A fun stop if you're driving the Icefields Parkway through the Canadian Rockies. You join a group and climb aboard these huge custom-made vehicles (the wheels alone are probably six feet tall) that take you up onto a glacier. You get great views...

Athabasca Glacier, Improvement District No. 12, AB T0E 1E0, Canada
Standing on the white-blue ancient ice of the Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, Canada, fulfilled a lifelong dream I never knew I had. The Athabasca Glacier, a tongue of ice 6 kilometers long and one kilometer wide, is part of the Columbia Icefields,...

AB-93, Jasper, AB T1L 1J3, Canada
The Athabasca Glacier may look huge. After all, it measures six kilometers long and one kilometer wide. It’s also 350 meters deep, which makes it taller than the Eiffel Tower. Yet it’s still less than 3 percent of the Columbia Icefield. At 215...

Athabasca Glacier, Improvement District No. 12, AB T0E 1E0, Canada
The glacier was an amazing site, but also impressive was the old truck they used to use to ferry tourists out on to the ice. Now they use a modern fleet with modern tires, but on a smaller and shrinking glacier.

Banff, AB, Canada
In Banff, there are lots of ways to feel like you're being a rugged outdoorsperson without actually having to be rugged. Floating the Bow River was my favorite of these. The water is clear, you're surrounded by snowy peaks, and you don't have to...

Highway 1A, Banff, AB T1L 1A9, Canada
Bring your ice cleats for a breathtaking walk through Johnston Canyon’s sparkling walls of ice. In the summer, this canyon near Banff is full of rushing water, but in winter it freezes over, creating icicles and slick cliffs. You can head out on...

1 Mountain Ave, Banff, AB T1L 1K2, Canada
The Upper Hot Springs are a few minutes away from the main part of downtown Banff, Alberta. It was just under $20 for two people to soak in the springs — including admission, towel and locker rental.

While the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge may subscribe to Jasper’s claim of "Cabins, not Condos," the Fairmont Signature Cabins are much more luxurious than rustic. Rather than a simple 5-star rating, the Lodge sits beneath five million and...

While staying at Dunton Hot Springs, I had the opportunity to go on a great hike to Colorado's only active geyser. Though it is not an Old Faithful-like show-stopper, it is still very cool to be one of the very few people who see it every year.

Paigah Tombs, Owaisi Nagar, Hasnabad, Santosh Nagar, Hyderabad, Telangana 500059
One of Hyderabad's lesser-known gems: the Paigah Tombs are intricate, ornate, and often deserted. Members of the noble Paigah class are buried here, and a visit is peaceful and haunting — and beautiful. A photographer's dream.
